Chincoteague Calm cover

CHINCOTEAGUE CALM (2018): Put-in-Bay investigative reporter Emerson Moore's relaxing fishing vacation to Chincoteague Island is interrupted when he becomes embroiled in deadly international intrigue affecting NASA rocket launches.

Assisted by the sultry director of nearby Wallops Island's NASA facility, the sarcastic head of NASA security, the charming owner of Captain Bob's Marina, and a mysterious loner, Moore works his way through a maze of suspects, including some local troublemakers and rocket experts from Russia, China, and Europe—any of whom might be motivated to sabotage the U.S. space program.

Bodies start dropping faster than horses running from a wildfire while Moore is still knee-deep in identifying who's behind all the chaos, treachery and deception. Lives can be saved if only Moore can discover who is sabotaging the U.S. space program—and why—all while preventing himself from becoming a victim.

Murder, cross, and double cross. Who's telling the truth?

Mixed with local Chincoteague Island flavor and characters, Chincoteague Calm is a breathless roller-coaster ride filled with twists, turns, and gut-wrenching surprises as Moore works furiously to break through the fog of deception that has enveloped the once-peaceful island.
