Once I started reading it, I could not put it down! Great story, great characters and incredible suspense! Terrific in every way!
Terror Grips the Beach: He is wearing dark sunglasses. He has on jeans, and a t-shirt, boots, and a ball cap, which is not exactly beachwear attire. However, the thing that gets my attention is that he is wearing a backpack. He passes us and stops about halfway to the lapping waves of the ocean, in a rather crowded area. He takes off his backpack and places it gently on the sand. He waits about 30 seconds and then walks north along the beach. Alarms go off in my head as he abruptly turns and cuts diagonally back toward the beach access path and away from his backpack
Murder on the Front Nine: I heard my cute freckle-face twenty-eight year old overnight guest leave around 6:30 this morning. No good-bye, just a note which read, Mickke D,been fun but my boyfriend will be back in town tomorrow. See ya, pops. Stunned by the "pops" comment, I walk into the bathroom and with blurry eyes, gaze soulfully into the mirror. Staring back at me is a forty-five year old single male about 6'1" 190 pounds with sandy blond hair, who looks to be in good shape when he pulls his stomach in and throws his shoulders back. Maybe not the buff, ex-Green Beret he was after mustering out of the Army fifteen years ago, but not a "pops".
Kent wrote: Good story, enjoyed the read and use of Myrtle Beach area locales, and some very interesting characters. With all the action along the beach and around water, it has a little Clive Cussler/Dirk Pitt novel feel to it.

Death on Mt. Pleasant: On the other end of the phone is the man she is there to meet. He tells her he has changed his mind about meeting her in the open parking lot, and now wants their meeting to take place up on the mountain. She pauses. Her history with Mt. Pleasant sends a coursed shiver through her. She hates heights, and she is petrified of Mt. Pleasant. Nevertheless, knowing how important this story is to her and the entire community, she ignores her personal fears and agrees.

Cougars at the Beach: Detective Concille asks, "Do you know what a cougar is?"
I reply, "Sure, it's a large brown cat that lives in the mountains."
"No, I mean a female cougar.:
"Of course, a large brown female cat that lives in the mountains."
"Very funny. A cougar is defined as a female over forty who dates a male at least eight years younger than her."
"Oh, that kind of cougar. Do they really exist?" I ask.
"Oh yes, they exist big time here at the beach. But they are a very discreet and an almost closed society."
