|Orchid Blues marks the
return of one of the most engaging new heroines of suspense, small-town chief of police
Holly Barker, a young woman Entertainment Weekly called "tough and
tight-lipped (and) fun to watch" when she was introduced in Orchid Beach a few
years ago. In this second adventure, Holly and her extraordinary Doberman, Daisy, track a
very unusual band of thieves.
Holly is on her way - with her steady beau, Jackson Oxenhandler - to a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, when the festivities are shattered by a brutal crime that takes place too close to home. A highly disciplined team of men hits a local Orchid Beach, Florida, business, and the waves from the robbery nearly capsize Holly's life. She vows to find the culprits - who have been careful enough to leave nothing behind except the corpse of an innocent bystander - and soon she discovers evidence that leads her into the midst of a clan whose members are as mysterious as they are zealous.
Holly's father, Ham, a retired Army chief master sergeant, is her ticket into the strange world this group inhabits, and what Ham learns there boggles the minds of Holly and her FBI contact, Harry Crisp. Holly and Ham are sucked into a whirlpool of crazed criminality, and in the end, even the FBI can do little to help them. This time, Holly, Ham, and Daisy are on their own, and they wouldn't have it any other way.
