WHEREFORE ART THOU, JANE?
(a novel by Jean James & Mary James)

In the lush, primeval wilds along the Choctawhatchee
River, even the stillness has depth. Those who venture
in might believe they are unseen, but nature has many
eyes and all trespassers invite risk

JANE PATE, raggle-taggle photographer, writer, and
reptile collector, considers the remote areas of nature
her personal stomping grounds. The risk fits her as
comfortably as her garfish-and-guava-seeds existence.
It is only after she meets REGINALD FAIRCLOTH, her
inquisitive, interfering, English-gentleman publisher,
that the word risk takes on new meaning.

When complications of lethal magnitude further invade
her life, she bungles further and further into the depths
of peril--deep into a creeping, slithering world where it
is one strike and you are out.
