Dead Pelican
A Spy Shop Mystery
by Lisa Haneberg


Galveston Bookshop will host a book signing on Saturday, September 7th, 2:00-4:00 p.m. for author Lisa Haneberg with her series of mysteries set on Galveston Island.

Book synopsis: A popular Galveston Island birding guide is found dead in Christmas Bay, west of San Luis Pass. Was the killing random or does someone have it out for birders? Can private investigator Xena Cali solve the crime without ruffling too many feathers?

Honeymooners hoping to find a quiet spot for a romantic picnic instead discover the dead body of Forrest Yates, a top birding guide and bottom dweller human. The murder rattles the local birding association as they prepare for the yearly influx of Sandhill Cranes and the bird enthusiasts who flock to the island to watch them. With Ned “The Pelican Man” Quinn as their sidekick, Xena and her team explore the dark side of birding and the tenuous relationship between commerce and nature to solve the case.

Dead Pelicans is the third in a series of mysteries (Ghost Rat, Toxic Octopus) following the case files of Xena Cali who had relocated to Galveston Island, Texas, and opened the Paradise Lost Spy Shop and a private investigation practice in the gritty Strand Historical District.
