REBEL ISLAND – In the seventh entry of the Tres Navarre mystery series, Tres Navarre had given up private investigationâ€”and with it a violent past that had buried too many friends. Newly married, with a baby on the way, it was time to find a safer line of work. He and Maia had come to Rebel Island to celebrate their honeymoon and a new future. But no sooner had they arrived than a reminder of the past showed up in the form of a corpse shot dead in room 12.
Just like that Tres finds himself flashing back on the memory of a grim childhood summer spent on the islandâ€”a summer that changed everything in his life. A summer he could never forget but never entirely remember either. And when a second corpse turns up, itâ€™s clear to Tres that the past is not dead and buried after all, but is stalking Rebel Island with unfinished business of its own.
What really happened that long-ago summer, what dark secrets were kept, and who has come back to avenge themâ€¦these are the questions Tres, his brother Garrett, and the very pregnant Maia must answerâ€”and time is running out. For a monster hurricane is about to hit Rebel Island, cutting them off from the mainland and leaving them trapped on a flooding island with the hotelâ€™s remaining guests brutally dying one by one. Tres knows better than anyone that the bloodlines of South Texas are as twisted as barbed wire. This time theyâ€™re guarding a revelation that can turn his dreams of happily ever after into the ultimate nightmare.
