The Story in Brief – Tan Lines

Something is killing the perch in Lake Erie. Is it bioterrorism or a new fish kill virus? When

incumbent United States President and the Canadian Prime Minister visit the Ohio State

University’s Stone Lab on Gibraltar Island for a conference and walleye fishing, the President

disappears. It’s two days before the President stands for renomination at the party’s national

convention in Cleveland.

When the head of the Presidential Protection Detail accuses Washington Post investigative

reporter Emerson Moore of attempting to assassinate the U.S. President, Moore escapes and a

massive hunt is initiated to capture Moore. The hunt is soon expanded to include missing Secret

Service Agent and a mysterious, unidentified third party.

Amidst a sniper’s assassination attempt, a covert terrorist in Grosse Ile, a series of unsolved

murders, a rogue Put-in-Bay police officer, an illicit love affair, arson, Pirates’ Week festivities, a

terrorist bomb threat in Put-in-Bay and boat chases; Moore tries to stay one step ahead of his

would-be captors as he works to clear his name and find the President.
