A Dangerous Harbor – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds – Desserts
 

 

‘Katy leaned over and deftly nudged the weedy raft around so that its reluctant passenger was facing her, and then ever so gently, pushed back the wet strands of black hair.  Dark wings of brow stood out in stark relief on pale olive skin.  It was a girl, maybe all of sixteen, she guessed.  “Where’d you come from?”  She wondered to no one in particular.  As if to answer at least part of her question, the ocean swelled, lifting up the maiden’s bier until Kate was looking into slightly open eyes.  There were no petechiae, the telltale red dots freckling the cornea and typical of strangulation.  “Not strangled, but still…”  A frothy red bubble clinging to the nostril and a few more at her mouth said drowned, but not in the water very long as the limbs were still pliant and the skin wasn’t bloated or damaged by fish or sea birds.’
 

 

Detective Katrina Taylor Hunter, of the San Francisco Police Department, was forced to take a sabbatical after shooting her sister’s stalker.  While the investigation was going on, she decided to take sail down to Ensenada, Mexico to clear her head and hopefully return to her position on the force.   After discovering a floater Katy has doubts about the head clearing part of her trip.  Her doubts are confirmed when after spending hours at the Ensenada Police Station she bumps into Gabriel Alexander, a former ‘love of her life’ who is being investigated as a possible connection to the dead girl found by Katy.  And to make matters worse, she meets Chief Inspector Raul Vignaroli.  Her reaction to him is immediate attraction.  One problem…he wears a wedding ring and Katy has no desire to become involved with a married man.  So will she be able to handle being around him after he cons her into helping with the investigation?  Also, how will she handle her feelings for Gabe, the man she loved so deeply in her younger days?
 

 

Following Katy as she uncovers what appears to be a sex slave market being run by not only one of the boat captains but also the drug cartel, will keep you on your sitting on the edge of your seat, biting your nails and guessing.  I had several ideas for who the killer(s) would turn out to be but found myself wrong most of the time.  I have to say that the real killer, whom is not exposed until the end, surprised me.   A Dangerous Harbor has turned out to be just as good as the Lalla Bains books A Dead Red Cadillac and A Dead Red Heart, both written by RP Dahlke.  All three will keep you on the edge.
