Duncan Scott, a successful financial adviser, becomes a prime suspect when his business partner, Jake Collins, is murdered.
Jake’s life passions had been women and gambling. When his debt rocketed to half a million dollars the casino boss, Danny Brewster, applied the blowtorch to get his money back.
Investigators, Tony Vascelli and Tim Newman, swap sleep for heavy duty coffee while they sift through the evidence trail; a blood smeared jacket, matching Jake’s DNA, and a threatening letter sent to him a few days before his death.
Shark Bait demonstrates the past is never erased and events often rise from the murky waters to confront people who believed they'd wiped their slate clean.
