Publisher Comments:

Green Haven, Maine, is as far from the heat and violence of her past as Jane Bunker could hope for. When she trades in her career as a big-city homicide detective for a new job as a marine insurance investigator, Jane thinks that a fresh start in this sleepy seaside town will finally allow her the peace and quiet that she's been craving.But when the town drunk washes up on shore - with the back of his head smashed in - Jane realizes that Green Haven is not the quaint sanctuary she?d thought it was. The townspeople don?t think the tragedy is anything more than a drunk's long walk off a short pier, but once Jane discovers the sordid details of the dead man's past, it occurs to her that this just might be one local problem she knows a lot about, from her former life in Miami.And down there they call it murder.Unable to resist the lure of one last investigation, Jane makes it her business to find some answers. Though normally a woman of few words, Jane manages to talk herself into every corner of Green Haven, and in a small town like this, it isn?t long before the wrong person finds out that she's been asking the right questions. In Green Haven, all answers lead to the ocean - and when Jane finds herself at sea, in the ferocious grip of an almost perfect storm, she has the chilling realization that her life may well be in the hands of the very murderer whom she's been seeking.Filled with an off-the-wall cast of eccentric characters headed by the unstoppable (and relentlessly thrifty) Jane Bunker herself, Slipknot is a riveting fiction debut made truly outstanding by Greenlaw's inimitable voice, unerring ear for all things maritime, and talent for combining humor with edge-of-your-seat suspense.

Synopsis:

Jane Bunker is a marine investigator who has just moved back to a sleepy Maine community. Shes a lover of all things Scottish and so thrifty that she never throws anything away. When the town drunk falls to his death off the town dock, it looks like an open and shut case, so Janes insurance company will pay. But did he really fall or was he whacked in the head and then pushed? Was he really a drunk? How does this relate to a heated town hall meeting about energy windmills, fishing rights, and paternity suits? And can Jane get to the bottom of it all without spending any money and without ending up in mortal peril? The answer is yes about the money, but things take a turn for the worse when she finds herself literally at sea with the killer.
