Dublin Core

Abstract

The publication of a columnist's diary has everyone at the Star on edge when shortly after publication there are a series of murders. Nosy reporter, Jack Jordan, gets the case, and must travel from New York to St. Augustine with his wife in tow. All he has to do is hope that the killer does not ruin his new change of scenery or interrupt St. Augustine's nights of dancing.

Notable local locations visited include the Casa de Mar (Casa Monica Resort and Spa), the St. Augustine Links (now partially covered by the Northeast Florida Airport), the Bridge of Lions, Castillo de San Marcos, the Huguenot Cemetery, the Old City Gates, and the Matanzas River.
