Killer in Paradise

MANETTA MYSTERY ADVENTURE SERIES - Book 5 - KILLER IN PARADISE, scuba diver and art gallery owner Dayle Standish struggles to save her marriage as she searches for a priceless artifact dating back to Christopher Columbus. But Dayle's path through the land of the ancient Mayans intersects with a vicious killer in Cozumel, Mexico, putting herself and her friends, Terry and Joe Manetta, in danger.

The story will appeal to divers and non-divers alike, and diving readers will recognize dive sites located in Roatan and Cozumel. The unique story line takes readers inside cenotes (pronounced SAY-NO-TAYS), the underwater caves that riddle the Yucatan, and which supplied the ancient Mayans with much of their fresh water.

Harry Hawksbill CHILDREN'S BOOK - HARRY HAWKSBILL HELPS HIS FRIENDS: Vibrant photos depicted on high-quality glossy pages sets this book apart from other children’s books.
