Paradise has a dirty secret.

Tom is looking forward to spending spring break in Mexico with his girlfriend, Kat. Her father, an FBI agent, has invited Tom to join them at a fancy Cancun resort for some much-needed R&R. But when the daughter of a local law-enforcement officer goes missing, Kat's dad is pulled into the investigation. Soon after, Tom notices a yacht in the marina with a suspicious-looking crew and a kid matching the missing girl's description. Investigating further could lead Tom into the dangerous world of ruthless Mexican drug cartels.

Mayan Murder continues the story started in River Traffic.

"Fast-paced…a good start for reluctant teen readers." - Kirkus Reviews

"The author deserves credit here for creating a reasonably complex story using simple language within a truncated story structure." - Resource Links
