Mystery | Suspense
Paulo Ferrara, a young Portuguese man, lies comatose in
the Intensive Care Unit of Timbergate Medical Center,
shot in the spine. The neurosurgeon who would normally be
in charge of his care has left town to attend to an
injured daughter, and the only other neurosurgeon, the
rude and egotistical Dr. Godfrey Carver, is about to be
suspended for not completing his continuing education
The unpleasant duty of ensuring that the staff obey the
rules lies with Aimee Machado, the medical center's
forensic librarian and Continuing Education Coordinator.
Aimee and her pilot boyfriend Nick live together on her
grandparents' llama farm. While dealing with Dr. Carver,
Aimee learns the circumstances of Paulo's injury and
enlists Nick's help. Aimee is half Asian and half
Portuguese, and her parents live on Faial, one of the
Azores Islands off the coast of Portugal. Faial is the
closest neighbor to Pico, home of Paulo and his family.
Paulo came to rural Northern California in search of his
fifteen-year-old sister Liliana, who vanished two weeks
ago. Nick's wealthy employer Buck Sawyer takes an
interest in the girl's plight as well, especially when
they learn that she left the Azores on a superyacht. Not
only is Buck a yacht owner, but he is also on a crusade
against drug trafficking, and Paulo and Liliana have
clearly stumbled onto a criminal operation of some kind.
The trail leads Aimee and Nick from Timbergate, to the
Azores, to San Francisco. Paulo's condition is
deteriorating, and he might never be able to explain what
got him shot. Can Aimee, her brother Harry, and Nick
unravel the mystery in time to save Liliana?
Book 4 in the Aimee Machado Mystery series, which began
with Due for Discard.
