Marooned in Baja, Mexico, a Chechen arms dealer is waiting for the right diver to retrieve the deadly cargo lying at the bottom of the Sea of Cortez. But when Leila Hunter Standiford, on hiatus from her TV contract happens to admire the handsome captain aboard a beautiful vintage Alden, she doesn’t realize the boat will soon burn to the water line, or that a dead body will be found below, or that the captain has been targeted as the sacrificial diver, or that meeting the captain will forever change her life.

RP, AKA Rebecca Dahlke was raised on her father’s 80 acres of Almonds & crop dusting ranch south of Modesto, California. She’s been writing since 1994, first with a writing group in the East Bay Area and then when she and her husband went sailing. My protagonist for the Dead Red Mystery series is a tall, blond ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, has “been married so many times they oughta revoke my license.” Lalla is no Danielle Steele character & she’s not afraid of chipping her manicure. Scratch that, the girl doesn’t have time for a manicure. The first three books are based in the Central Valley of California. Beginning with A Dead Red Alibi, Lalla and family move to South East Arizona where she and cousin, Pearlie Bains, will continue to their unearth killers as Wishbone, Arizona’s newest P.I.s. My romantic suspense books are also on Kindle: A Dangerous Harbor, and Hurricane Hole. If you liked my Lalla Bains series, I know you’ll love these books: More romance, more suspense, and in an exotic location with nastier bad guys and a bald parrot!
