Henry Pierce is a new detective whose first case entangles him in her old quest. Is there a conspiracy only she can see?

 

ON THE HORIZONUnseen, a second Henry Ike Pierce novel.

Excerpt: I awoke at 5:00 a.m., eleven o’clock at home, but two hours later than the day before. The partiers at the streetside restaurant below me had lingered until midnight. I had hoped to leave my outside door open to let the sound of the ocean lull me to sleep, but so far after two nights that wasn’t to be. I gave up trying to sleep, turned off the window air conditioner, made coffee, then walked out onto the lanai of my third-floor suite. Across the street, several boats, tiny to large, bobbed up and down in the dark bay, the closest sometimes bumping the dock, lit only by the three-quarter moon shining through the cloudless sky. A well-worn, white and red fishing vessel, the Miss Mio, was available for chartering, something I checked on yesterday and I’d always wanted to try. This would be the perfect opportunity after breakfast with my boss and the commander. They didn’t need a third wheel, and my mother and grandmother had their own plans. A day alone in Maui; I couldn’t think of anything better.
