An Outer Banks Mystery
Two teen boys come across a body in the grass alongside the road.
Lieutenant Diane Turnipseed of the C-District Dare County Sheriff’s Office takes on the task of searching for clues to the man’s identity.
Blood is found in a local eatery’s restroom. Then, an explosion on the beach nearly takes out the Medical Examiner, and events take a darker turn.
A storm slashes the island, threatening to obscure any remaining clues only to reveal one instead.
When a home video recorded by a Texas couple on the two-hour ferry passage from Cedar Island suggests a dead body in a man’s car, Lieutenant Turnipseed’s team hope they have turned the tide in the investigation.
Instead, a startling revelation from a teenage girl threatens to derail the investigation, only to provide the one clue that might bring this harrowing case to its final conclusion.
About this book:
A wedding, a drive halfway across the country, and a weekend on the Outer Banks for a sister who wanted to see one thing: Ocracoke Island.
And this book was born.
The book opens with two teen boys and their truck on the side of the road, their dogs in the back, and a dead body in the dunes. While driving down the Banks on that wedding weekend, we happened by a similar scene (no dead people, of course), and between us that day, we worked numerous members of the wedding party into the story.
I changed the names a bit, but I enjoyed our story so much that I wrote it down.
I hope you enjoy this adventure as much as we did.
