Raveler Angie Curtis gets tangled in a historical mystery. “For a trip to Maine for the cost of a book, this is the author to read.” —Kings River Life Magazine Angie’s first auction may turn out to be her last—when she bids on a coat of arms that someone would literally kill to possess . . . Tagging along to an estate sale with her fellow Needlepointer, antiques shop owner Sarah Byrne, Angie Curtis impulsively bids on a tattered embroidery of a coat of arms. When she gets her prize back home to Haven Harbor, she discovers a document from 1757 behind the framed needlework—a claim for a child from a foundling hospital. Intrigued, Angie is determined to find the common thread between the child and the coat of arms. Accepting her reporter friend Clem Walker’s invitation to talk about her find on the local TV news, Angie makes an appeal to anyone who might have information. Instead, both women receive death threats. When Clem is found shot to death in a parking lot, Angie fears her own life may be in jeopardy. She has to unravel this historical mystery—or she may be the next one going, going . . . gone . . . Praise for the Mainely Needlepoint mysteries “Offers a wonderful sense of place and characters right from the very beginning. Highly recommended.” —Suspense Magazine “A cozy debut that hits all the sweet spots: small town, family ties, and a crew of intriguing personalities.” —Library Journal

"Members of the genus Decapterus usually occur in schools and are distributed throughout the world in tropical and subtropical waters. Decapterus is found generally in inshore waters, although larvae and young may occur in oceanic waters (Berry 1968). Fishes of this genus are important both for human consumption and for bait. In the Philippines, the round scad (Decaplerus spp.) is the largest commercial fishery, reaching over 100,000 tons per year (Ronquillo 1970). The increasing demand for protein for humans has put additional pressure on fish species not formerly exploited to the fullest. This species profile will attempt to bring together information on aspects of Decapterus pmctatus so future management and research plans can be developed. Emphasis will be centered on the species in the Gulf of Mexico"--Introduction

The highly specialized nature of marine mammals when compared with their terrestrial counterparts, the environment in which they live, and the impact of humans on them throughout history and at the present, have made of the scholarship on these creatures something unique in itself. Therefore, it is not surprising that many researchers have also taken a distinctive approach to their study. This volume is aimed at providing a glimpse at such diversity of views and approaches while delivering valuable information on marine mammalogy. Given the increasing concerns regarding issues of anthropogenic factors affecting these animals, it is not surprising that the majority of chapters in this book deal with this subject.
