A Port Chatham Mystery

Mystery / Supernatural
by Bob Walch
If you like a mystery with a supernatural twist, you’ll love
Jordan Marsh and her historic seaside home in Port Chatham, Washington,
that comes complete with a history that includes not only rich stories
but even more esoteric ghostly inhabitants.
When the town’s infamous womanizer, Holt Stillwell, is found
dead on the beach, the bullet in his head suggests he may have messed
with the wrong married or single woman. Then another victim floats
to the surface and poor Jordan has her hands full.
Why? Because along with the current mayhem, one of Jordan’s
ancestors, a notorious shanghaier from another time period, has
materialized to solve his demise in a suspicious shipwreck that
occurred over a century ago.
Life is getting more complicated by the moment thanks to her attraction
to pub owner Jase Cunningham, but Jordan may not have too much time
for romance unless she gets to the bottom of the ugliness occurring
around her. With a killer on the loose, Port Chatham may be the
scene of another homicide that will strike much closer to Jordan
Marsh and her ghostly entourage.
A lively whodunit with a beguiling protagonist and a clever cast
of supporting characters, this third installment in the Port Chatham
mystery series features a tidal wave of action and surprises that
will make you want to read the first two novels if you haven’t
done so already.
