As the story unfolds she finds herself embroiled in an international drug trafficking ring. Everything hinges on finding the man with the sand dollar face.
"...a strong read, and contains plenty of action and is recommended. Harriet is an excellent character, not obviously heroic, but willing to take risks. Man with the Sand Dollar Face seems intended for adult audiences, but it is not beyond the reach of younger adults who have an interest in this sort of literature."
..."Sharon CassanoLochman has created a character that hopefully has a very long future in crime solving. I recommend this book for all mystery fans; it is a good read."
