River Traffic

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Soundings


Sixteen-year-old Tom LeFave is trying to hold his world together. His family's marina is struggling. His dad is full of secrets. And the quarterback of the football team hates his guts. When a huge yacht docks at Tom's marina, things look brighter, especially when he meets Kat, the daughter of the boat's owner. Kat and Tom share a love of rum-running history. It's not long, however, before Tom starts to realize there's something more than history happening on the river. And if Tom can't figure it out in time, he just might be history too.

"River Traffic is a tidy little mystery with interesting historical and contemporary details about smuggling, law enforcement, and policing. Brack Martin's characters are believably crafted—teen texting lingo included."

Mayan Murder

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Soundings


Tom is looking forward to spending spring break in Mexico with his girlfriend, Kat. Her father, an FBI agent, has invited Tom to join them at a fancy Cancun resort for some much-needed R&R. But when the daughter of a local law-enforcement officer goes missing, Kat's dad is pulled into the investigation. Soon after, Tom notices a yacht in the marina with a suspicious-looking crew and a kid matching the missing girl's description. Investigating further could lead Tom into the dangerous world of ruthless Mexican drug cartels.

Mayan Murder continues the story started in River Traffic.

"Fast-paced…a good start for reluctant teen readers."

"The author deserves credit here for creating a reasonably complex story using simple language within a truncated story structure."
