A Hole in the Water

(The first book in the Drew Nolan series)
A novel by

First of Six in the DREW NOLAN Series

Meet Drew Nolan, reluctant detective

Vacationing with an old High School flame on his charter boat in the Caribbean, Captain Drew Nolan sinks a hook into something he wishes he hadn't.

The floating bag of stink hauls him into deeper and deeper waters until there's nowhere to go but down.

Follow Nolan as he gets dragged from his home port in Key Largo and up the Florida Coast to a crummy marina, then out to a posh resort on the island of Bimini, then across the Caribbean to the cheesy south Texas coast, then to a Colombian resort island where possibly, just possibly, the drug cartel won't notice him.

Introducing June, smart, sassy and sexy, and Drew's once before and maybe again girlfriend. There's his rather odd sister, Annigail, his rich-as-Croesus brother-in-law, Watt, and Nolan's poor-as-dirt first mate, Wiley.

As for people wanting Nolan more than roughed up, there's a dapper lawyer for drug lords, Lawrence, as well as a mysterious and all-knowing Ghost who keeps telling Nolan to mind his own business. There's also more than enough people ready to bang our captain on the head.

There's Cordell Rapp, a wanna-be fishing king, a gotta-be smuggler, and a has-to-be killer whose partner it was that found himself snagged on Captain Nolan's hook.

Oh yeah, let's not forget Charlotte Rapp, the woman with champagne-colored hair. The svelt and abandoned wife of the weasel, Rapp, joins Captain Nolan for a cruise he won't soon forget.
