Successful financial advisor, Duncan Scott, become a prime suspect when his business partner, Jake Collins, was murdered.
In life Jake’s passions had been women and gambling. When Jake’s debt rocketed to half a million dollars, the casino boss, Danny Brewster, applied a blowtorch to get his money back.
Investigators, Tony Vascelli and Tim Newman, traded sleep for heavy-duty coffee, as they sifted through the evidence trail of a blood smeared jacket, matching Jake’s DNA, and a threatening letter sent to him a few days before his death.
Vascelli and Newman get a lucky break when one of Brewster’s prostitutes takes a savage beating and her loyalty to the casino boss turns toxic.
Shark Bait demonstrates the past is never erased and events lurking beneath murky waters often float to the surface; confronting the people who think they’ve wiped their history slate clean.
