ABOUT THE BOOK: Last Known Port
Anxious to see his brother after sailing off-shore for weeks, Jake Parson sails into Beaufort, North Carolina, in the Spring of 1923. After he docks in the harbor, he learns his brother is missing at sea. Set against Prohibition’s backdrop of boats and booze and rag and jazz, Jake senses foul play and believes the answers to his brother’s disappearance lay in the port town. His search leads him into the rum-running operations of Beaufort’s watermen.

While growing up in Beaufort North Carolina, Sue often heard rum-running stories from the Prohibition Era. Although fern bars, yachts, and supermarkets may have replaced the old working-boat waterfront, the town still values its unique Southern history. She is also a bona fide dyed-in-the-wool fan of historical fiction and mysteries.
When she is not writing historical fiction, or fighting environmental and humanitarian injustice, she loves to sail on a fair Southeast breeze. Preferably at the helm of a wooden Sharpie. https://sueanger.com/ https://www.facebook.com/SueAngerAuthor
