Synopsis

Read the first in the Quint Mitchell Mystery series by award-winning author Parker Francis.

When PI Quint Mitchell volunteered to help with an archaeological survey in St. Augustine, he didn’t count on digging up a murder victim. In the nation’s oldest city, Mitchell discovers links to ancient sins, comes face to face with his own past, and unleashes powerful forces that will do anything to keep their secrets—even if it means taking his life. In this award-winning debut mystery, author Parker Francis taps into an undercurrent of violence hidden behind the sleepy facade of the historic town. When Mitchell’s friend, the City Archaeologist, is charged with a brutal murder, he must find the true killer while fighting inner demons and the corrosive residue of racial violence dating back to the Civil Rights Movement. As he learns, St. Augustine was birthed in blood—Matanzas means “place of slaughter” in Spanish—and violence is never far from the surface.

Praise for Matanzas Bay

Matanzas Bay is a Chinatown-like hall of mirrors of murder, conspiracy, and land development in St. Augustine.”

David Poyer, author of The Med

"Parker Francis has created a mystery that twists and turns like the narrow cobblestone streets and alleys of the city in which it is set."

The Florida Times-Union

Matanzas Bay is as intricate and full of surprises as an archeological dig into old Florida’s treasures and new Florida’s darkest secrets. Francis’ private detective Quint Mitchell has hard edges, an anguished past, and just the right amount of wise-cracking good humor to keep readers smiling. Matanzas Bay is a page turner to the end.”

Michael Wiley, author of A Bad Night’s Sleep

Matanzas Bay is a multi-layered murder mystery capable of keeping readers striving to unravel the puzzling events.”
