 Lost at Sea feb 2Lost at Sea

DUE SUMMER 2019

In June 2017, Alejandro, a young inexperienced fisherman set out for a day of long-line fishing.  Hours later, the boat motor failed. The captain ordered Alejandro to stay behind while he and the other crew member hitched a ride on a passing boat to pull in the catch. On their return, they reported that Alejandro and the disabled boat had disappeared. 

Rebecca in California and Salvador in La Perlita launched a search to find Alejandro—without success. Several theories spread through the Mexican fishing village: a tragic accident at sea? Cartel involvement? Murder? Did he fake his own death? Did he drown and his death was covered up? 

Follow Rebecca as she attempts to unravel the mystery. 

This is a work of fiction based on true events.

“Travel with Rebecca to the beautiful coastal village of La Perlita, where she attempts to solve a tragic mystery that impacted the close-knit community. Linda Bello Ruiz tells a story that keeps you wondering what happened and makes you feel the very real emotions of her characters. This is definitely an intriguing  ‘page turner’ from beginning to end.”  Author, Janice Orsini.

 "A gripping story, hard to put down. What happened to Alejandro? Will he be found?"

 Jeri Ferris-Chase, award-winning author of twelve biographies for young adults.

“An intriguing mystery with an ending we can only hope for.” 

Dory Lee Maske, author of the Princess Electra book series.
