Blue Water Red Blood

by DL Havlin

blue water red bloodWould history repeat itself? “Look what happened to our British friends at Gallipoli. Of the first two hundred men that landed at Cape Helles, only twelve made the beach alive.” As early as 1919, Marine General “Howling Mad” Holland Smith knew the US would likely be involved in another World War against Japan. He feared that it was only a matter of time. His eyes turned to the Pacific islands as the most logical theatre of war. How, he wondered, could the Marines possibly land troops and keep them alive long enough to fight? In 1928, the killer Okeechobee Hurricane strikes Florida. Don Roebling, grandson of the builder of the Brooklyn Bridge, is determined to invent a rescue boat that can conquer the swamps, the flooding and the debris strewn terrain to save lives! Together, these two Americans will face nightmares of red tape, engineering challenges, corruption and personal set-backs to train and equip the US Marines for their greatest challenges of WWII, and shape world history.

Havlin — The Bait Man

THE BAIT MAN

by DL Havlin

the bait man“Wild child” Chessie Partin had enough of being branded a woman who never finishes what she starts, so when she stumbles on murder evidence implicating the local “bait man” (and her tormentor), she sets her jaw and enlists the help of her suspended policeman brother, Reading, to catch the man she’s sure is a killer. Huston there’s a problem! Not enough proof. She decides to gather enough facts on her own to convict bait man, Rooster Cocker, and to prove he is the despicable villain she believes him to be. Chessie finds she’s only partly right when she shoves her nose into a sinister enterprise that has corrupt officials protecting it and that may end up slicing and dicing her to be sold as “replacement parts” by Harlan Mengelberg, its evil owner.

escaping skeletonsEver hear of Operation Paperclip? Our heroine, Chessie Partin, had not. She soon found that its unintended consequences would threaten her life and many of her associates.

One desperate plan was the highly secret operation called, “Paperclip.” It was concocted to beat the Soviets in the race to grab as many German scientists as possible at the end of the war. Mistakes made to expedite this operation were carefully hidden but did, and still do, haunt the US government. The danger rises as Chessie and her crew, begin unearthing 70-year-old dirty laundry. Accompany her as she narrowly escapes death and unearths secrets NO one is supposed to know. Escaping Skeletons is the second of the series of Chrissie Partin, Archaeologist adventures.

Havlin — Turtle Point

Turtle Point: Featuring Harper Sturgis In The Iron Lady Mystery/Suspense Series

by DL Havlin

turtle pointIt’s ironic that the portion of their lives sea turtles go to the most pains to keep secret is the part we humans know most about. It’s equally ironic that humans and sea turtles share a trait…they bury things they wish to remain undiscovered. It’s this common “burying” instinct that allows me to introduce my mystery novel, Turtle Point. DL Havlin’s new mystery/suspense novel, Turtle Point, explores this possibility. Benny Dupree, the main character, lives with the constant threat of the exposure of a deed committed thirty years in the past. Living in a paradise of white sand beaches and warm tropical waters, Benny is enjoying his senior year in college when a beautiful co-ed turns his world upside-down. Her dedication to ecology and saving sea turtles becomes his. They encounter poachers. Benny finds his new love being buried by the two criminals. Benny kills and buries them in island sands. The threat of having his crime discovered fades during the next thirty years, but suddenly is forcefully revived by two mysterious “treasure” hunting men who threaten to penetrate all the defenses he’s erected to protect his secret. As they snoop and get close to exposing him, Benny becomes frantic and seeks help from a friend. Enter Harper Sturgis! A friend refers Benny to this lawyer/private investigator who specializes in tough cases. A retired Marine Intelligence Officer, Harper takes no prisoners. Benny finds “she” is as tough as any “he” he’s ever met. Harper takes the case and exhumes secrets and surprises that Benny isn’t even aware. Is Harper able to save Benny from spending the rest of his life in jail? Read and find out. Set in the beautiful Sanibel-Captiva, Pine Island area in Southwest Florida, Turtle Point will captivate the mystery/suspense reader who craves differences in characters, plot, and story resolution.
