Backwater Bay by Steven Becker

How much would it take for you to kill someone close?

From Bestselling Author Steven Becker comes a new mystery series:
When a body is found floating in the mangroves of Biscayne National Park, Special Agent Kurt Hunter has his first real case. He’s not looking for the spotlight or notoriety—he’s had both with disastrous results. But that seems unavoidable as the trail leads him to South Beach and his introduction to the culture there is anything but comfortable.
In the National Parks Service’s version of the witness protection program, Kurt quickly finds out that the pristine waters surrounding Miami are very different from the National Forest he transferred from. Follow Kurt through this new world as he unearths a crooked families greed to solve the case.

“Backwater Bay' features mystery, danger, excitement for readers.

This series is one of my favorites. Steven Becker is a genius when it comes to weaving a plot and local color with great characters. It's like dessert, I eat it first. – RAH

Kurt Hunter is the everyman hero. He's flawed. He screws up. Just like all of us. But he always muddles through. This is another gem of the South Florida Genre, featuring boats and diving and sunken treasure (and for those of us who live here traffic, ostentatious lifestyles, and picturesque bums). Escape to the pristine waters of Biscayne Bay with Kurt and Justine (and the wacky Susan). I assure you, it'll be worth your while. – David Thatcher Wilson

I recently started reading Steven Becker books on my kindle and I really love them…. you feel as though you are totally immersed in the adventures he has created…I anxiously await more Kurt Hunter books… Thank you Steven Becker for your creations. – Amazon Customer

This book was a real page-turner. I read it really quickly, eagerly looking forward to starting it again each time I put it down. The book will really appeal to mystery lovers with a love for the “salt life”. It's full of boating, fishing and some paddling, and of course, a murder to solve. – Bill T –This text refers to the paperback edition.
