The Cane's Inlet Mystery

Scandalous Lies
The Cane's Inlet Mystery, Book 1
Adam Carpenter



A secret rocks Noah Sanders' life, sending him back to a coastal town he never knew, one in which he may have been stolen from.


In a tiny Adirondack village, a secret is about to be exposed. Noah Sanders learns from his mother—on her deathbed—that he is not who he thought. Suddenly, the unassuming Noah finds his entire life called into question, and only he can separate the truth from the lies.


He'd been given one clue: his real name. But what is the reason for his abduction from the family he should have known. The coastal paradise called Cane's Inlet is where Noah finds himself, trying to keep a low profile as he quietly begins his investigation. But Demetri, a sexy diner owner, catches his attention almost immediately, as does the local police chief when Noah stumbles across a corpse on the beach.


Cane's Inlet is known for its sunny shores, the lush waves of the ocean. But a deeper mystery lies beneath the surface, and Noah is the unwitting key to unraveling a long-held truth. Insinuating himself into the ways of the locals, Noah learns of the feud between the founding family, the Canes, and to the rich newcomers, the Hatchers. With no one to trust, Noah tries to fight his attraction to Demetri, all while desperately trying to keep secret his reason for coming to town.


SCANDALOUS LIES is the first part in a trilogy that will lay bare stories of the past, and in the end, no one will escape the web of deceit that has defined Cane's Inlet for more than one hundred years. Scandalous, sinister, suspicious, the Cane's Inlet Mystery is a tour-de-force tale of two families, one secret, and, ultimately, one man's discovery of his own true self.



Sinister Motives
The Cane's Inlet Mystery, Book 2
Adam Carpenter



At the conclusion of SCANDALOUS LIES, Noah Sanders made a startling discovery, one that turned his already conflicted motives into further turmoil, the mystery of his past growing as dangerous as the undertow of the ocean.


In Cane's Inlet, located on a barrier peninsula along the Jersey Shore, the lucrative summer season is fast-approaching, as is the Opening Night celebration of the Medusa Lounge, where Noah has secured a job. But working alongside the Hatcher's at their exclusive resort is complicated by his own investigation into the scandal that might connect them. With a family secret uncovered during a surreptitious visit to their mansion, Noah's quest to seek the truth behind his mother's deathbed confession takes on sudden credence. With the aid of his new lover, Demetri, as well as Cane's Inlet busybody Cilla Cane, the questions only deepen.


When another murder shocks the coastal village, Noah realizes that what's happening no longer concerns only himself, but perhaps all of Cane's Inlet. With a mystery dating back to the village's founding and the raising of the old pirate ship Medusa, no one is safe from being exposed, or from a desperate killer. For Noah, the truth might come at a price higher than he's willing to accept.


SINISTER MOTIVES is the second part in a trilogy that will lay bare stories of the past, and in the end, no one will escape the web of deceit that has defined Cane's Inlet for more than one hundred years. Scandalous, sinister, suspicious, the Cane's Inlet Mystery is a tour-de-force tale of two families, one secret, and, ultimately, one man's discovery of his own true self.

But then the killer strikes again, making Noah's investigation even more personal. He uncovers a string of secrets that have been lost to the ocean floor for generations. Reaching deep into the past, Noah is in a race against time before the season begins.
