Here at last is award-winning mystery author Brendan DuBois' second novel in his Lewis Cole mystery series, BLACK TIDE.
The sequel to DEAD SAND has Lewis Cole looking into the mystery surrounding an oil spill on the beaches of Tyler, and the headless and handless corpse of a diver, washing ashore in front of his house. Add in a puzzle involving three missing Winslow Homer paintings, and Lewis Cole soon finds himself in the fight of his life.
Also included in this e-book edition is a special Foreward and Afterword, in which the author describes the challenges of writing a sequel, and the fun oddities that arrive while preparing this second novel for e-book publication.
BLACK TIDE is "...one of the most sharply plotted mysteries of the season." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"DuBois' dry wit and laid-back writing style play nicely off the taut, action-packed plot. BLACK TIDE will appeal to a wide range of mystery fans." -- Booklist
"DuBois paints a vivid picture of Cole's life in controlled, seductive prose." -- Publisher's Weekly
"With plenty of rugged action and quick spook-type thinking, DuBois has constructed an absorbing tale of greed and utter ruthlessness." -- York County Coast Star
