The stories about rum-running might not be ancient history after all.

Sixteen-year-old Tom LeFave is trying to hold his world together. His family's marina is struggling. His dad is full of secrets. And the quarterback of the football team hates his guts. When a huge yacht docks at Tom's marina, things look brighter, especially when he meets Kat, the daughter of the boat's owner. Kat and Tom share a love of rum-running history. It's not long, however, before Tom starts to realize there's something more than history happening on the river. And if Tom can't figure it out in time, he just might be history too.

"River Traffic is a tidy little mystery with interesting historical and contemporary details about smuggling, law enforcement, and policing. Brack Martin's characters are believably crafted—teen texting lingo included." - Resource Links
