Tampa's free-spirited Judge Wilhelmina Carson returns in the third installment of this well-loved series.
During Tampa's annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival, murder chases Judge Willa's beloved secretary into a world of corruption, bank fraud, and art theft while Willa's dad, Jim Harper, suffers hell of his own making.
Just as Willa is recovering from the shock of meeting her father's new trophy wife, her secretary Margaret Wheaton becomes mysteriously involved with a nefarious jeweler. When both Margaret's husband and the jeweler end up dead, Margaret is the number one suspect. Judge Willa sets out to prove Margaret innocent and takes the listener on a ride through Tampa's month-long pirate party - with twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end: whodunnit?

What starts off to be a routine murder mystery suddenly twists and turns to be something so much more complex in its issues.
We also delve into the personal lives of Willa and her husband.. the struggles they go through not only in their professional but also personal lives.
A rash of rather gruesome dead bodies have been turning up dumped in various places(obviously not where they had been killed). They appear to have no connection with each other..
I must admit I did not see the ending or the bad-guy coming which in itself is a great achievement with a crime novel.
Going by this book I will be reading more from this author about her heroine Judge Willa Carson.
