Black Water by Rosemary McCracken
A Pat Tierney Mystery - Book 2
How strong is a mother's love?
When Pat Tierney's daughter, Tracy, asks her to help find Tracy's partner, Jamie Collins, their mother-daughter relationship is stretched to the limits. Pat heads out to cottage country where an elderly man, who killed Jamie’s sister in an impaired driving accident ten years ago, has perished in a suspicious fire. Unfortunately, Jamie is the prime suspect.
Pat takes charge at the new branch her investment firm has opened in the seemingly idyllic community where Jamie grew up, and her search for Tracy's missing sweetheart takes her through a maze of fraud, drugs, bikers and murder.
Once again, Pat proves that family can always count on her.

"Rosemary McCracken is a master when it comes to showing ordinary people embroiled in extraordinary circumstances. From page one, Black Water draws the reader deeper and deeper into what at first seems a missing-person case but--step by step--eventually becomes a gripping tale of kidnapping, fraud and the violent settling of old scores. Pat Tierney, financial advisor, widow and mother faces off against bikers, drug doyennes and a crazed killer in this fast-paced engrossing mystery. It's a fast read with a beautifully complicated plot and great action near the twisty ending!" —Rosemary Aubert, author of the Ellis Portal mystery series
"Rosemary McCracken's second Pat Tierney mystery takes us into the tranquility of the Ontario lake country. But the idyllic setting has a dark underside. Human greed and ancient grudges are wreaking havoc. McCracken's smart and engaging protagonist must discover the truth and restore peace to paradise. She's more than up to the task." —Gail Bowen, author of the Joanne Kilbourn mystery series
"I personally love books where the characters are so believable and well-drawn that they become friends. Black Water is filled with wonderful details of everyday life that melt the curtain between the fictional and the real world. Add to that a suspenseful story and you have a winner all around." —Maureen Jennings, author of the Detective Murdoch mystery series
"A man meets and fiery death and in the small world of Braeloch, a northern Ontario town, suspects abound. McCracken's clever plot kept me guessing right to the end." —D.J. McIntosh, author of The Witch of Babylon
