DAvanzo, Charlene

Charlene DAvanzo writes the Mara Tusconi Mystery Series which starts in May 2016 and is set in Maine. It features oceanographer Mara Tusconi. In the first book Mara investigates something much hotter than the ocean’s temperature––a potential murder aboard Research Vessel Endeavor. When Peter is crushed by a half-ton buoy in what is called a freak accident, Mara is outraged and suspicious. She’s also spooked because this feels all too familiar. Mara’s parents, famous ocean defenders, died in a bizarre submarine accident twelve years earlier when Mara was nineteen. She’s always wondered if the sub was sabotaged and now fears that Peter’s death was also made to look like a mishap.
