It's time to catch a killer or walk the plank for P.I. Sarah Booth Delaney in Booty Bones, award-winning author Carolyn Haines's latest whodunit. Yo ho!

Sarah Booth Delaney's fiancé, Graf, is recovering from a severe leg injury, and Sarah Booth knows just how to help him heal. She's arranged a romantic getaway for the two of them at a lovely beach cottage on Dauphin Island off the Gulf Coast. On the first day of their island adventure, they take a historical tour led by a woman named Angela, who is well-versed in local lore-including but not limited to rumors of pirate treasure hidden somewhere on the island...

"Delightful...[a] satisfying beignet of a mystery."-Publishers Weekly

Turns out that Angela's own father was a sailor and treasure hunter who was murdered just as he was closing in on the treasure. Angela's convinced that the wrong man was imprisoned for her father's murder, and soon she enlists Sarah Booth's help to catch the real killer. But as Sarah Booth digs deeper into the case, she realizes that there's much more going on than meets the eye. With untold amounts of treasure offering plenty of motive for murder, it's hard to know who to trust. How far is Sarah Booth willing to go to unbury the truth and find the killer...before he finds her first?
