Favorite Quote: “Welcome to the freak show. “
Seawitch, the seventh installment in Richardson’s Greywalker series, pits magic against good old police skills in a swashbuckling seafaring adventure when Harper Blaine teams up with a Seattle police detective to investigate a decades old mystery. When a boat (the Seawitch) that has been missing for 27 years suddenly turns up, abandoned in its slip, the insurance company calls in Harper Blaine to investigate. They need to know where the boat has been and what happened to the passengers on board. Seattle Police Detective Rey Solis is also on hand to investigate the whereabouts of the passengers. Harper finds herself having to trust the taciturn detective with her secrets once it becomes apparent that the Seawitch and its passengers were the victims of of a deadly curse. A curse that it is not finished claiming its victims.
Harper’s and Rey’s joint investigation takes them deep into the past where sea legends and myths become reality when they learn that the bewitched Seawitch may have been built out of another doomed ship’s parts and at least one of the passengers from the Seawitch is alive, well, and hasn’t aged a day in 27 years. Harper and Rey have to find what connects the two cursed boats to a woman who, by all accounts, should be dead.
