“Trouble in Mendocino” is an action-packed thriller you’ll be tempted to read cover-to-cover. Jack Beckett and FBI Agent Riley O’Connor must track down the killer of three young women who washed up in San Francisco Bay before he kills again. The story is set in San Francisco, Reno, and finally, the small coastal town of Mendocino, where the killer’s next victim makes her escape. It’s a race against time when the killer learns that Jessica is in Mendocino, a three-hour drive from San Francisco along a twisty coastal highway. Beckett and O’Connor are in Reno, an even longer drive to Mendocino, that is, until Beckett gets an idea that just might get them there in time. The ending is explosive and surprising.
