It’s summer, and with a new job, a new love, and plenty of time for her music life couldn’t be better for Logan McKenna.
She and her daughter, Amy, home from Africa, even rescue an orphaned sea otter pup and help nurse it back to health at the newly-minted Southern Sea Otter Center. But powerful storm clouds soon swirl around the center. Two half-siblings lay claim to the property, and other players have their own ideas for lot 429. Some of them lead to murder.
With no resolution in sight, death soon dominates the calendar, exposing deep layers of deceit, greed, and painful, personal loss. The sharks in the water are dangerous, but the predators on land, more numerous and deadly. Only love, trust, and community have any hope of stopping the killing before more lives, including Logan’s own, are lost.
Devil’s Claw is an emotional ride illuminating what we value, and for what we’re willing to fight.
