Murder in Costa Rica
Divorced, overworked, and full of doubts, Laura Humphreys escapes to paradise to volunteer for a sea turtle conservation project. Her vacation is shattered when a friend is murdered. The police are understaffed, a government official may be stalling the investigation, and Laura refuses to relent.
Antonio De La Torres, the lead government investigator, is determined to have an honest investigation. His attraction to Laura makes him even more committed to his goal but he may be running out of time.
Laura joins forces with the global conservation community and learns that paradise isn’t always what it seems.
"Murder in Costa Rica written by L.D. Markham is one of the best mystery novels I have read in some time. I am an avid reader of mysteries and I could not put this book down until I got to the last page. I then learned it was based on a true story. Markham did a wonderful job in creating a mystery novel from a true story. This book also raises an awareness of crimes relating to sea turtle egg poaching. A great 5-star read." Amazon reader review
