Slipknot Publisher's Summary

Green Haven, Maine, is as far from the heat and violence of her past as Jane Bunker could hope for. When she trades in her career as a big-city homicide detective for a new job as a marine insurance investigator, Jane thinks that a fresh start in this sleepy seaside town will finally allow her the peace and quiet that she's been craving.

But when the town drunk washes up on shore - with the back of his head smashed in - Jane realizes that Green Haven is not the quaint sanctuary she'd thought it was. The townspeople don't think the tragedy is anything more than a drunk's long walk off a short pier, but once Jane discovers the sordid details of the dead man's past, it occurs to her that this just might be one local problem she knows a lot about, from her former life in Miami.

And down there they call it murder.

Unable to resist the lure of one last investigation, Jane makes it her business to find some answers. Though normally a woman of few words, Jane manages to talk herself into every corner of Green Haven, and in a small town like this, it isn't long before the wrong person finds out that she's been asking the right questions. In Green Haven, all answers lead to the ocean - and when Jane finds herself at sea, in the ferocious grip of an almost perfect storm, she has the chilling realization that her life may well be in the hands of the very murderer whom she's been seeking.

Filled with an off-the-wall cast of eccentric characters headed by the unstoppable (and relentlessly thrifty) Jane Bunker herself, Slipknot is a riveting fiction debut made truly outstanding by Greenlaw's inimitable voice, unerring ear for all things maritime, and talent for combining humor with edge-of-your-seat suspense.

    Jane Bunker thought she'd escaped the pollution, noise, and dead bodies of the big city when she left her job as a Miami homicide detective and moved back to the idyllic town of Green Haven, Maine. But through her work as a marine insurance investigator, it appears she's left behind the bustle of the city but not the murder. When Jane is called to the remote Acadia Island to assess the damages from a house fire, she also finds a badly burned body in the charred rubble.

    Jane prefers to put in her hours working as an insurance investigator, and part-time as the deputy sheriff. When she gets to work one morning, the sheriff asks her to take a break on her personal war on drugs. Instead, Jane takes on a missing person case - a young woman working at the Bar Harbor Inn has disappeared. When it becomes clear that Bianca isn’t just sleeping off a late-night party, Jane is plunged into the underbelly of the resort town, and must find the missing woman before the worst happens.
