Salem, New York – Savvy Press announces the release of Mayhem in Matlacha. The latest mystery by acclaimed novelist jd daniels, Mayhem in Murder is a fun, edgy, fresh, and feisty tale set against the backdrop of a funky, artsy Southwest Florida fishing village.
Mayhem in Matlacha opens with Jessie Murphy haunted by the fact that for months she’s been stalked. Distracted, on her trip to Florida, she veers off the road when a van comes too close to her vehicle. Unbeknownst to Jessie, that accident marks the beginning of a search for both a murderer and a stalker. With no shortage of suspects, Jessie launches a pulse-quickening investigation that leads her to death’s door. But through her own power of reasoning and feisty Irish refusal to not finish a job once begun, Jessie uncovers a startling, surprising ending.
Mayhem in Matlacha has received this high advance praise:
