High Water Hellion

(The fifth book in the Luanne Fogarty Mystery series)
A novel by

In this fifth installment of the Luanne Fogarty mystery series, Luanne has headed south into the flat lake, snake, and gator country of central Florida with her scuba gear and canoe - seems her boss, macho Detective Amado, has finally been forced to ask Luanne's help. His beloved old aunt is dead and strange things are disappearing into the murky watery gator-mating ground behind the old lady's house. And blowing east from the steamy Gulf of Mexico is a hurricane that threatens another kind of violence. Will Luanne catch the human killers and get back to her beloved swamp before it's too late?

Favorite characters - Pasquin, Luanne's Cajun octogenarian neighbor, Vernon her lover and fellow diver, and Marshall Long, medical examiner - are back for the dangerous ride as Luanne and Tony bring them into the search while the local law enforcement battles the wind and water of the hurricane.

"Gators, bottomless caves, mucky sinkholes, blood-sucking mosquitoes and drippy humidity come together in a Florida swamp to provide the perfect eerie elements for murder... . The story lines flow like the Palmetto River, which hides another world beneath its smooth surface."
- Dawn Goldsmith

"Inventive, stylish... manages to bring to life yet another part of Florida's seemingly endless killing grounds: the deep and cold freshwater springs of the northern part of the state... ."

- Dick Adler, The Chicago Tribune

"Alam's novels are thoroughly enjoyable. They offer, in addition to a good read, a fascinating look at the swampland of northern Florida and the world of diving in mysterious rivers and bottomless caves."
- Lauren Haney, author of the Lieutenant Bak ancient Egyptian mysteries
