The Hayden Kent Mysteries

Death By Blue Water
ISBN-13 978-1-957270-00-5

Warm tropical waters. A deep dive. A body.


Hayden Kent takes to the world beneath the sea to come to terms with her broken heart. Instead of peace, she discovers the body of her ex’s brother clad in a swimsuit and anchor chain. How did Richard end up in the wheelhouse of the Humboldt, and why do the cops claim she was the last person to see him alive? He never showed at Faulkner Marina, or did he? A vicious migraine robbed Hayden of her memory of that night. The clues she follows to save herself uncover criminal activity at the highest level. Can she find the killer before he drowns out her life?


Death by Blue Water is the first book in the Hayden Kent mystery series. If you like fast-paced suspense like John D. MacDonald and Heather Graham that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go, then you’ll love this series.

Death by Sunken Treasure

When Hayden Kent’s mentor and friend discovers her son Mike’s dead body, dressed in full scuba attire, washed up on Pigeon Key in the Florida Keys, she needs Hayden. Her paralegal and dive skills may help unravel the tragedy of Mike’s last days. He’d recently discovered a sunken Spanish galleon and rumors that he hit the mother lode ran through the Keys like wildfire.


Hayden’s dive on the treasure site uncovers gold, and clues that Mike’s death was something far more sinister than an accident. When two different wills, both signed the day Mike died, are delivered to the courthouse, the suspect list grows, as do the threats against Hayden. The danger escalates as she tries to save herself, discover the motive, and find the killer.
