A tale of kidnapping, buried treasure and murder with an incredible twist. These characters are well defined or so you think, not everyone is who they seem. A great mystery.
They found Whit Mosley's missing friends at Black Jack Point--dead and buried, along with bones and relics from a legendary past. When Whit opens an inquest into the murders, he's plunged into a shadowy world of ruthless treasure hunters, double-crossing tycoons, and money-hungry sharks--all chasing a long-lost fortune in emeralds and gold. His only ally, police detective Claudia Salazar, is kidnapped at sea and held hostage in a deadly game of betrayal and greed. To survive, both Cluadia and Whit must stay one step ahead of their common enemy--a desperate killer far more dangerous than any pirate of old.
Excellent. Throws in some pirate and New Orleans history.
Whit Mosley, small town JP, must investigate a crime involving some of his nearest and dearest. Too bad they are not as honest and reliable as he is.

I almost wanted to say this book was too long but I think I was just reading as fast as I could and wanted it to move faster, well written I didn't find a slow place in it, stuck with the story and moved along very good
