About the Series
"A cozy English seaside town built on secrets and smugglers, Blackpool is a haven for tourists and home to generations of locals who like their privacy. American Molly Graham and her British husband, Michael, are considered outsiders, but feel irresistibly drawn to this town...and its darker curiosities. Because Blackpool harbors dangerous mysteries. And murder is just the beginning..."
Michael and Molly Graham
The story starts with a bang-or more accurately, a boom-as a pirate ship sails into Blackpool harbor, accidentally firing off its canon. Suddenly everyone is talking about pirate curses and stolen Gypsy gold. It's all fun, until someone is shot. As Molly and Michael dig into the mystery, they find that more than one person had reason to want the man dead. And their investigation is making them some powerful enemies.
