Bimini Twist
by Greenlaw, Linda

Deputy sheriff Jane Bunker races against time to save the life of a foreign exchange student who has gone missing from her summer job during Green Haven's busy tourist season. By the best-selling author of The Hungry Ocean.

LINDA GREENLAW is the author of the bestsellers The Hungry Ocean, All Fishermen are Liars, The Lobster Chronicles, and Recipes from a Small Island, as well as the Jane Bunker mysteries, including Slipknot, and Fisherman's Bend. Before becoming a writer, she was the captain of a swordboat, the career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She now lives on Isle au Haut, Maine, where she captains a lobster boat.

Jane Bunker, deputy sheriff of Hancock County, Maine, is having great success making drug busts, but the powers that be want her to back off for the summer to protect the area's lucrative tourism industry. Tasked with finding a college student from Romania in Maine on a summer work visa, and a cadet missing from the local maritime academy, Jane investigates, but she believes the two are together and will shortly turn up embarrassed and unharmed. During her investigation, she helps rescue a lobsterman whose boat she believes was deliberately sunk in a territorial dispute. Soon it looks like the cases may be connected as bodies begin to pile up. Jane connects the pieces while becoming romantically interested in a mysterious local man. Jane is a no-nonsense, principled lead who is surrounded by well-drawn, quirky secondary characters. This mix of police procedural and small-town mystery will appeal to those who enjoy Mary Logue's Claire Watkins and J. A. Jance's Joanna Brady series. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
