About Found

Best-Selling and Award-Winning Author

Sleepy Longboat Key comes alive with multiple crimes

The quiet of Longboat Key, Florida, is shattered when an old man is shot to death and his murderer is killed while fleeing the police. Strange documents in German and Arabic are found in the killer's car, then an old friend of the murdered man disappears.

The island's only detective, Jennifer Diane (J.D.) Duncan receives a text message with a picture taken that morning of a college friend whom she thought was dead. Matt Royal and J.D. are pursued by men who would do them harm, and Matt's best friend, Jock Algren, a shadowy operative of the U.S. government's most secretive intelligence agency, comes to visit the island.

As the mystery deepens, a ragtag group of devious and dangerous characters intrudes on the lives of the islanders, creating a kind of havoc unusual for a sun-splashed island full of retirees and beach bums.

Matt, J.D., and Jock rush to find the answer to why one old man was killed and another disappeared, the meaning of the photo sent to J.D. of her almost surely dead college friend, and why somebody is trying to kill them.

Perfect for fans of Robert Parker and John Sanford

"Witty, smart and highly entertaining. An intriguing mix of hopes and fears that combine into a pulse-pounding treat." —Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author

"Take a tough female cop, a witty and charming retired lawyer, toss in a host of quirky Floridians, and, oh yeah, a murder that on the surface makes no sense, and you have Terry Griffin’s Found. Tightly written and sprinkled with humor, this fun and fast-paced read should not be missed.” —D.P. Lyle, Macavity-winning and Edgar and Agatha-nominated author

“A mixture of straight-ahead action and laid-back John D. MacDonald–style narrative (Matt is definitely a hero in the Travis McGee mold), this agreeable tale will be a treat for Griffin’s growing readership as well as Travis fans." —Booklist

"This is a great investigative thriller with action that never stops. Every time one thing is solved, a new ‘clue’ arrives that completely transforms the face of the original case. Written by a superb writer who is the mind behind Wyatt’s Revenge, H. Terrell Griffin has once again hit it out of the park!" —Suspense Magazine
