Black Water

(The second book in the Mitch Mitchel series)
A novel by

After two critically acclaimed cop novels, Edgar Award-winning author Doug Allyn moved from the mean streets of Detroit to the glistening ice fields and emerald waters of northern Michigan to introduce a formidable new protagonist, Michelle "Mitch" Mitchell, in a chilling series debut novel, Icewater Mansions. Michelle Mitchell is a survivor, a thirty-ish single mom who supported herself and her young son by working at the roughneck trade of maintenance diving in the Gulf of Mexico, before returning home to northern Michigan. In the second novel of the series, Black Water, Mitch finds herself in deep water again, both physically and financially. The bar/restaurant she inherited from her father needs a new roof and her bank account needs an emergency transfusion - it's as barren as her love life. For quick cash, Mitch takes a nightmare job: working black water. She descends into a murky river with zero visibility to find a drowned car and its luckless driver. The car is there, the driver is not. The missing driver is a surly delinquent who came to Huron Harbor seeking his millionaire birth father. Mitch suspects foul play, but the only person with reason to harm the boy has been dead for thirty years.
