A book based on Winnabow was released in January 2018.
The blurb on Amazon says:
“Lawyer Peyton Sorel is confident she’ll win a verdict in a massive securities case, until unexpected evidence forces her to question everything she knows about her best client. With the trial and possibly her livelihood on the line, Peyton hunts for a truth she hopes she won’t find.
Her search leads into the path of a talented fixer for a South American drug cartel, Leandro Dufau, who controls all narcotics transport along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. After a shipment goes missing, he tracks the thieves to North Carolina and Winnabow, a vast rice plantation on the Cape Fear River. In North Carolina, Leandro encounters Peyton, who has returned home to see her father and investigate the client.
Peyton picks apart the client’s dark operations, which leads to Leandro. They collide in the high society of North Carolina and the wilderness of Winnabow.”
