Leave No Wake - a short mystery

I'd like to introduce you to my mystery short story Leave No Wake:

Meet Mr. Varney and Mr. Johnson, two old men who run the Arrow Point Resort in central Minnesota. Situated on a chain of lakes, this quaint resort offers the usual amenities; shuffleboard, night crawlers, cabins for rent, and gas for passing boaters. Best of all, they offer the things that money can't buy; the most beautiful sunsets west of the Mississippi, the smells of campfires and motor boat exhaust, the songs of loons and frogs in the night. Simple, yet charming memories that stick with a person long after they've gone back home.

But the peacefulness of the Arrow Point Resort is broken when stripper Gina Veale checks in and her ex-boyfriend comes looking for her. When Benny, the foul-mouthed turtle boy, finds her body, the two elderly resort owners realize the case may not be as cut and dried as it seems. They want to make sure the right person is put in jail, even if it means risking their lives.

Leave No Wake originally appeared in the Nodin Press anthology RESORT TO MURDER alongside stories by best-selling authors such as William Kent Krueger, Ellen Hart, and David Housewright.

Please join author Joel Arnold as he takes you on a trip up north in this short story where even the prettiest of waters still have a bit of chill left in them.

All of the stories of the anthology that this story originally appeared in were set in fictional versions of real Minnesota resorts. The names of the resorts were changed, but a lot of readers had fun trying to figure out which resorts the stories were talking about.

Come on down to the dock and dip your toes in the lake. The fishing's good, and Sunday over in Nisswa, you can watch the turtle races. Ever heard of such a thing?

Hey, do you want to hear the story of the woman we found in the lake here? It was a hell of a thing...

Spring is finally here. The lakes are still cold, but don't they look inviting?

It's nearly lake weather up here in Minnesota. Still a little chilly, but the waters are calling.
