Do you like fish stories? Morgan O'Brien must, because she found herself up to her neck in fish and murder, an unpalatable mix that smelled up the laboratory of her best friend Elaine. A complaint about funding from a scientist brought Morgan to Vancouver to investigate the financial aspects of research on salmon without annoying the researchers. But the combination of a missing research assistant, missing funds, a fraudulent resume, broken love affairs, all added up to a case of missing fish, secret formulas, and murder. Complex relationships and tender egos add to the chaos as Morgan enlists the help of Dinah, another assistant, to unravel the puzzle's many loose ends. Talented author Alex Brett takes the reader behind the scenes of research and its complexities and variations. A look into academic deceit that has far reaching consequences in the world of fisheries. A recommended read for the mystery buff who enjoys a bit of science while following the trail of a killer. Enjoy.
