The Five-Cent Gang has moved over to make room for the new book!

There was a strangeness to
​the​ boat . . . it had ​no mast,                            ​and it hadn't​ moved in
​over two years.​​


A
n abandoned thirty-five foot sloop named Miss Demeanor sits on the inter-coastal waterway of Florida’s Indian River. The boat’s origin and what secrets remain on board unfold as an expelled cadet from Annapolis, a drunken boatyard owner, and a graduate of the Maine Maritime Academy all have designs on the right to own her. Although their motives vary, none of them realize her cargo could prove fatal.

The Five-Cent Gangis a coming of age novel set in the 1950s. It is the story of five youths whose innocent, and often humorous, pranks escalate until the event on the D & H Bridge throws their lives into turmoil.  ​​What seems to be a scheme for easy money evolves into a mix of drama and suspense as they become unwilling players in a deadly game.
