There’s something tempting at Hampton Beach, something besides the sea and sand. Money and lots of it. The kind of money that brings greed, violence, and murder to anyone it touches. Just Dan
Marlowe’s luck to stumble across the murdered body of Hampton Beach’s premier property owner. Now he has to find something else—her killer—and fast. Before a Hampton police detective, who thinks Dan is behind every crime on the beach, hangs the murder on Dan.

There’s one more thing Dan has to watch out for. Something as dangerous to him as any beach killer and just as deadly. Himself
Blood On Hampton Beach is available in Trade Paper and e-versions from Amazon Books, Barnes & Noble, and all other outlets.
