9780060559557: Restless Waters: A Rachel Porter Mystery (Rachel Porter Mysteries (Paperback))

For most people, Hawaii is heaven on Earth. But U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agent Rachel Porter sees the rot beneath its natural splendor. Its pristine shores are harboring a new breed of criminal, those who would upset the fragile ecological balance in the name of profit ... those who would kill in the cause of greed.

On the trail of illegal traffickers in exotic animals, Rachel stumbles upon something far more insidious and frightening -- and a suspiciously shark-devoured human corpse that washes up on the rocks is only the beginning. Suddenly everyone wants her off a case that is too hot to handle. But she won't be warned, coaxed, or threatened away, even as the blood that darkens the tropical waters marks Rachel Porter as the most endangered creature in Paradise.

About the Author:

A freelance journalist specializing in wildlife enforcement issues, Jessica Speart has been published in the New York Times Sunday Magazine, OMNI, Travel & Leisure, Audubon, and many other publications. She is the author of several mysteries and lives in Connecticut.

From Booklist:

In Speart's tenth Rachel Porter book, the intrepid federal agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been transferred to Hawaii. To her chagrin, she finds her new boss insufferable and the work utterly boring. But a chance meeting with a teenager trapping chameleons in the forest soon leads her to uncover an illegal animal-export business. Rachel quickly discovers that the business is linked to a "shark-finning" operation that's making millions for its owners. When she attempts to discover who those owners are, she receives strong hints that she should stick to her paperwork. But, in genre fiction, that's like waving a red flag in front of a bull. Fresh, irreverent writing and a fast-paced plot combine with a sassy heroine and vibrant descriptions of "the real Hawaii" to give this environmentally conscious thriller multiple levels of appeal--especially for animal lovers and surfer dudes (and dudettes).
