Brighton Publishing releases "Unexpected Event at Catalina Island" by novelist R.J. Poliquin
"On par with the works of James Patterson and other great suspense writers, R.J. Poliquin showcases his literary gifts with another masterpiece of suspense."
Synopsis: Lane and Dillon Rolt have returned to Avalon, the capital of Catalina Island, for a vacation. A little over ten years ago, they were married in the iconic Casino building in Avalon and then were marooned on San Clemente Island.
Lane's sister, Allie, and future brotherin-law, Patrick, surprise Lane and Dillion on the island for a short vacation of their own, and together the group notices suspicious behavior from some fellow tourists.
After what seems like a peaceful few days on the island, explosions begin to occur across Avalon as well as on a cruise ship that recently left Catalina Island for Ensenada, Mexico.
Sabotage, corruption, murder, drug smuggling and the discovery of what happened to Lane's missing Uncle Jim, a former admiral in the US Navy, combine together to make the Rolt's latest getaway a truly mysterious adventure.
"Showcasing his literary gifts, novelist R.J. Poliquin pens yet another masterpiece of suspense," said Don McGuire, of Brighton Publishing LLC. "Once again, Poliquin pens a story on par with the works of James Patterson and other top suspense writers."
R.J. Poliquin is a senior construction project manager in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has been intimately involved in the construction of many of the strip's premier projects, including; Bellagio, The Wynn, Mandalay Bay, Green Valley Ranch, MGM Grand, Red Rock Resort, Town Square, City Center, LINQ, etc.
He grew up on the beaches of southern California, surfing, diving, and generally enjoying all water sports. For a few years he spent the summer on Catalina Island, one of California's Channel Islands. R.J. is married with two grown children and two unruly cats. His family moved to Nevada eighteen years ago when his house became too small, the kids too large and work in California slowed down. Missing the ocean, he now gets a water fix by kayaking in the Colorado River or standup paddling in Lake Las Vegas.

R. J's first work Death of the Island Fox, was released in 2015. Receiving much acclaim in the literary market, it established R. J. as a recognized author. Continued reader demand spurred End Game at San Clemente Island in 2017 and now Unexpected Event at Catalina Island.
