Read in October, 2011

I got this book from my church library. It's on the old side, but nothing is dated about it that I could see. It's a story of a leading citizen of a southern city that falls overboard into a dark sea one night. His body is never found.
However, folks start speculating that he actually lived and ran off to Mexico with his paramour, who has also mysteriously disappeared.
Our two main characters are not detectives (naturally!) but have come to town to clear the name of the captain of the boat, who is accused of being drunk, and really wasn't.
It's a good read and I hope those of you from my church will check it out (when I can return it!)
