Description

Cordi O’Callaghan is trapped on a remote island research station and in way over her head. While a hurricane rages, Cordi stalks a murderer — or is it the other way around?
Zoologist Cordi O’Callaghan thinks she’s in for a relaxing birdsong study at a research station on Spaniel Island, off the coast of South Carolina. But, as usual, she can’t escape the chaos that follows her everywhere she goes. As a hurricane rages, trapping her and the rest of the researchers, the director of the station is found dead under troubling circumstances.
Unable to resist a mystery, Cordi sets out to investigate, and ends up getting a crash course on the life habits of bats, sea turtles, and rattlesnakes — and a refresher on attempted murder.

Editorial Reviews

Nicely done, and Cordi uses her scientific knowledge well.

— Globe and Mail

The action is non-stop and the setting is incredible. The plot is complex, with twists and turns that keep Cordi and the reader on their toes.

— Mystery Maven Canada

…the author does a brilliant job of weaving together past and current transgressions as the fingers are pointed at possible suspects…If you are looking for mystery-filled thrill read with a surprise ending, this book needs to be on your TBR list.

— Confessions of a Word Addict Blog

There’s a slickly put together plot here that begins with what appears to be a sad case of bad luck. […] Novel with a smart, three-legged cat can fail to find its audience, and Forever Dead has that and the promise of more to come.
