Tom and Jackie Hawks were looking forward to the stage of their lives, the role of doting grandparents. With that in mind they wanted to sell their 55-foot yacht “The Well Deserved”, buy a smaller boat and house in San Carlos. Doing this would enable them to watch their grandson grow and and still maintain their cruising lifestyle.

On November 15, 2004 they took Skylar Deleon out on a trial voyage. It was the last time anyone heard from Tom or Jackie Hawks. Skylar Deleon wanted the boat without having to pay for it, he wanted a rich lifestyle without having to work for it.

This is a well-written detailed account of a horrific murder, with much biographical information and how the prosecution managed to convict Skylar and his accomplices, including his wife without recovering the bodies, the way the testimony of one of the defendants was backed up with tangible evidence, i.e. cell phone records was fascinating. I recommend this book.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
