BEACH BODY UNKNOWN by EMMA JACKSON
Flotsam, jetsam, and death. Oh, my.
Cape Charles’ local Iraqi war veteran, Nottingham “Nott” Smith, is minding his own beach-combing business when he discovers a body in the sand dunes. The plastic-wrapped stranger is one piece of salvage that won’t be decorating his shack on Cherrystone Creek.
Paige Reese, Nott’s friend and Coroner Ad Hoc for Cape Charles, relieves Nott of his find and sets to work identifying the stranger and his cause of death. A few bumbling sheriff’s detectives and a cursing, Spanish-speaking parrot serve to muddy the waters. With too few clues and too much distraction, Paige’s medical sleuthing leads only to more questions.
Until a witness identifies Paige’s brother in connection with the dead man. What was a questionable death is now considered murder, and Billy Reese is the prime suspect.
Paige must work quickly to connect construction-grade plastic, Chinese business papers, and the Atlantic Flyway to her deceased client. If she’s too late, her own brother could be the next dead man.
