Dead Lake Mystery Series by B. J. Robinson


Judy and Jim Knowlton, a retired couple who enjoy fishing, decide to fish and explore one of the two legendary Dead Lakes in Wewahitchka, Florida, and soon find themselves boating through hauntingly beautiful cypress trees, skeletons, stumps, and knees in a lake considered the best freshwater sport and bass fishing in the nation. Brace yourself with courage to boat in a graveyard of trees and explore.

Though Judy admits nature photographers would find an oasis, she can't shake the ominous feeling that snakes through her body. A lone cypress tree forms an eerie silhouette, but it isn't the only creepy rising skeleton from Dead Lake. Many bony fingers reach for the sky. Dawn breaks. A spectacular sunrise washes across the skyline, but fingertips of pink reach for the skeletal arms.

Judy likes to fish off bank, while Jim's pride and joy is his fifteen foot red-and-black Bass Tracker. He's all about boating and fishing on Dead Lake, and it'll take more than skeletal trees to change his mind. He can't wait for a diverse fish supper the lake offers.

An unsolved mystery from long ago entangles Judy and Jim in its web when an escaped convict decides he wants to search an old junk heap behind their mobile home. When their grandson and beloved pets are affected, the stakes are raised. Whose bones are discovered in Dead Lake near Swamp Rat's cabin in the woods? Judy spies the waters of the lake bubbling. Somehow, it doesn't remind her of discovering oil and becoming rich. The water is doing its on weird thing, and the tops of the cypress trees along the bank blur like wind is rustling through them, but there's no wind. Everything is still. A Florida evening T-storm drums down with wind gusting as Judy attempts to show Jim the water, but her voice is lost in the wind, and he steers the boat away without looking back. The lake water spirals around that certain strand of trees and ripples in a huge circle. Is the mystery of Dead Lake over, or is it just beginning?

Award-winning author B. J. Robinson takes readers to the Florida Panhandle northern Gulf County best known for the Dead Lakes and Tupelo Honey, which is world famous and has been harvested for over one hundred years from the Apalachicola River Basin.

Judy helped paddle the boat, and they rounded another curve. The trees made shadows on the lake, creepy ones like demons reaching out to snag them. She'd rather enjoyed the shadows during the sunlight. Mirror images had come to mind. Reflections. She gasped. There'd be no time to reflect. A man in a pirogue glided toward them upon the still, night waters. He seemed to rise out of a mist like a ghost, and she shivered as she slapped another mosquito from her arm.
Mere hours ago, Dead Lake had rippled in the early-morning misty fog, and she'd agreed to go on this adventure with her husband, despite the prophetic feeling of doom that assaulted every nerve in her body. She frowned as the SUV pulled into Dead Lake Park and commented, "Isn't it something that a prisoner escaped less than a mile from our house last night? Gives me the creeps." Judy didn't want to go out in the boat. A deep sense of foreboding clutched her heart.
