Even the sunny climate of a Florida beach town has its dark undercurrents. When the body of a real estate agent is found floating in the water just off the panhandle near Santa Rosa Island, only one woman has the wits, and knows the ways of the waters, to track down her killer. That woman is Carla Harper, though she’s not exactly in the best spirits these days to go chasing the bad guys. Tumbling in the Downdrift is the debut novella by T.K. Hatfield that tells a searing story of murder and betrayal, with a loyal mutt thrown in for good measure. It’s a page-turning mystery that will enthrall readers who like their characters with a dash of sea salt, and their murder served beach-side.
