Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

Lexi Winslow is an investigator for a private Beverly Hills bank. When the runaway daughter of her bank's richest client is spotted with her latest boyfriend at a remote resort deep in the Sumatran jungle, Lexi is dispatched to bring her home. Once Lexi arrives at the isolated resort, she discovers there are more deadly dangers inside the hotel than the crocodiles and tigers outside. It's a place where rich women often check-in, but don't check-out. Will the client's daughter be the next to disappear? And of all the places in the world, Lexi runs into her ex-lover, who not only conned his way into her heart, but is always conning someone somewhere. Lexi is determined to find out what's going on and to get them all out alive.

Suspense, intrigue, mystery, excitement and romance, Land Sharks: A Swindle in Sumatra has it all and more. Lexi is a fraud investigator for an exclusive Beverly Hills bank and the heroine of the story. She is sent on an assignment to Sumatra to bring back a client's rich daughter.

As Lexi and Steve arrive in Sumatra and find Karista, the rich daughter, they realize that the task of separating her from Javier, her new boyfriend, will not be easy. It quickly becomes apparent that Javier is a bad guy who has done many bad things and is simply interested in Krista's money and nothing more.

Land Shark is everything it claims to be and more. I read it very quickly because I just couldn't stand the suspense and was really anxious to find out what would happen next. Nancy Raven Smith is a master with words and made the story come alive and the characters very real. This is a must-read book for all mystery, suspense and detective lovers - men, women, young and old. Please do not pass up the chance to read a really well written, exciting story      - Reviewed By Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite
