Once a cop, always a cop.

RCMP Sergeant Ray Robertson is in the Turks and Caicos Islands, enjoying two weeks of leave from his job training police in Haiti with the UN. On an early-morning jog along famed Grace Bay Beach he discovers a dead man in the surf. Ray is shocked to recognize the body as that of one of his Haitian police recruits. To his wife's increasing dismay, Ray is compelled to follow the dead man's trail and finds himself plunged into the world of human trafficking and the problems of a tiny country struggling to cope with a desperate wave washing up on its shores.

This timely story is the third in the Sergeant Ray Robertson series.

Vicki Delany is one of Canada's most prolific and varied crime writers, and a national bestseller in the U.S. She has written more than twenty-five books: from clever cozies to Gothic thrillers, gritty police procedurals to historical fiction, and novellas for adult literacy. Under the name of Eva Gates, she writes the Lighthouse Library cozy series for Penguin Random House. Her latest novel is Elementary, She Read, the first in the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop series from Crooked Lane. Vicki is the past president of the Crime Writers of Canada. Her work has been nominated for the Derringer, the Bony Blithe, the Ontario Library Association Golden Oak, and the Arthur Ellis Awards.

"A good read. Truly page-turning and suspenseful. Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"It's short...and is intended to be read in one sitting...This is not to say, Delaney's writing is simple. To unpack a murder investigation in just over one hundred pages takes skill and precision. Every word counts, yet her description place us in the centre of the action...I can recommend this series for teens, especially ESL students and those with learning difficulties...In the merging of history, social justice, and contemporary characters, Rapid Reads offers accessible quality literature." - Ottawa Review of Books
