Dead Men Tell No Tales

Mystery Bookshop owner Ellery Page and Police Chief Jack Carson are diving for the legendary pirate galleon Blood Red Rose when they discover an old-fashioned diver's suit, water-damaged and encrusted with barnacles. Further examination reveals the 20th Century suit contains a 21st Century body.

Who was the mysterious diver? No one seems to be missing from the quaint and cozy town of Pirate’s Cove. Was he really diving for pirate's gold? And if not, what exactly did he do to earn that bullet hole in his skull?

A wealthy family of misfits have invaded near the end of the season for the yearly regatta (and waaay too much work for Pirate's Cove PD) and have brought a lot of craziness. Meanwhile, while diving, bookseller (and sometime amateur sleuth) Ellery and Police Chief Jack (they might be becoming a couple) come across a vintage diving suit which just happens to have a more recent skeleton inside. That is soon followed by a request (with money for needful things) for Ellery to find out who is trying (ineptly) to murder one of the wealthy misfits. It only gets wackier and more dangerous from then on. Oh, and Ellery's actress mother and producer stepfather are visiting. Lots of laughs, good sleuthing, friction in several kinds of relationships, and another fine cozy mystery in a great series! Loved it!
