This is a wonderful debut book. The plot develops nicely, and the characters are interesting as well. The real star here is the setting. Ms. Alam is able to bring the swamp to life using all five senses in a way that places you right there without overshadowing the characters or story. I was completely drawn into this world, enjoying every minute of it.
I highly recommend this entertaining mystery debut and all of the author's books.

Luanne Fogarty has escaped from the halls of academia to resort her family home and heal a broken heart. Using her inheritance to finance her dream all is fine until some kids chance a dive to the caves of the nearby springs and discover a body. The local sheriff prevails on Luanne to dive to check out their reports as his team is unavailable. She finds and photographs the body, but when the professionals return for search and rescue the body is missing.
What follows has as many twists and turns as the underground caverns eaten away through the cracks in the limestone bed of the swamps. Life and death are balanced in this vivid glimpse of a special niche of our ecological heritage.
I'm looking forward to the next title of this series.
Nash Black, HAINTS and WRITING AS A SMALL BUSINESS.
Glynn Alam's writing is so rich and evocative that from page one, you are deep in the Florida swamp, sweating in the humidity, listening to crickets, driving down rutted roads, partaking of sumptuous southern feasts, dodging snakes of both the slithering and two-legged kind, warily avoiding gators of both the four- and two-legged kind, scuba diving in frosty cold spring water and stumbling upon dead bodies in the limestone caves of the cold swamp springs of the Florida Panhandle.
Alam has crafted lots of plot twists and surprise turns that keep you moving through the swamp-fest as elderly Cajun swamp neighbor Pasquin helps Luanne Fogarty use her intellect, diving skill and Mother Wit to help otherwise pedestrian, balky Joe Friday-style cops solve a set of mysterious and bewildering murders, robberies and some nautical weirdness on the Gulf.
Get the book, enjoy it, and hope that Alam hurries up with the sequel.
