Description

Fishing for barracuda from a kayak in the Florida Keys. That's what Jim Webb thinks this resort vacation with his grandfather should be about. Except the dying resort owner holds the key to legend about a generations-old crime. A crime that is worth way too much to those who want the legend to be true. Webb soon discovers that what lurks in the sun, sand and shallow waters of the Keys is much more dangerous than a slashing game fish. And along the way, he learns an important truth about himself and his own past.

In this exciting prequel to Devil’s Pass and Tin Soldier, the musically gifted and tenacious Webb finds himself caught in a dangerous mystery.

Editorial Reviews

"This fast-paced mystery should appeal to Webb fans and those seeking an intrigue-filled escape to the Keys."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Brouwer has a talent for taking readers on intense adventures...Highly recommended."

— CM Magazine

"Of all of the Sevens, I liked Webb the best; Brouwer brings the troubled Webb to life in a way that grabs the reader and pulls them in…The balance between the development of Webb's newfound maturity and the dangers of the more quickly paced mystery is finely crafted. Webb's discussions with David—and the context for such discussions—are genuine, as are the mixed feelings Webb has for the ultimately deceptive Kristie. You can see from Webb and David in Barracuda the foundation of Webb's sorrow at David's death, and the source of the loving memories he has of his grandfather."
