Addie Gorsky’s second murder mystery takes her back to the days of Old Florida and a place called China Rose. When the twentieth century was new, China Rose Fish Camp was a popular vacation spot for folks passing through on Mr. Flagler’s railroad.
Nowadays, the only regular visitors at China Rose are mosquitoes and gators–especially the fifteen-foot bull gator the locals call Big Ben.
When Harry Pitts–the owner of China Rose–is beaten to death in his home, the bloody scene suggests a frenzied, random act of violence. Only Addie suspects that the roots of Harry’s seemingly senseless murder go deep. All the way back to the days of wily pirates and proud conquistadors, and the trove of treasure that legend claims is buried in this backwater.
As Addie dives headfirst into the wild heart of China Rose, she’s surrounded by grinning gators, killer bees and gaping cottonmouths. But these predators pale to the cunning two-legged killer Addie is hunting…and who soon begins hunting her.
