Synopsis: With his New York Times bestselling Doc Ford novels, author Randy Wayne White has been hailed as “the best new writer since Carl Hiaasen” (Denver Post). But decades ago, under the pen name Randy Striker, he was already delivering non-stop thrills with ex–Navy SEAL Dusky MacMorgan, who is about to go to war in a most lethal battleground.
MacMorgan is living the good life on his stilt house a mile off Fleming Key. The skies are as blue as the sea, and there’s not a cloud in the sky. But there’s a storm coming in the form of the beautiful April Yarborough. She’s the daughter of an old pal, and she’s come to ask for the kind of help only MacMorgan can provide.
The Yarboroughs have been in Florida longer than anyone can remember. Even today, many of them live off the grid, deep in the Everglades. Now, someone is waging a campaign of violence and destruction to drive them off their cherished swampland. And when MacMorgan dives into the fray, he finds that the deadliest danger in the swamp isn’t quicksand or ’gators, but big money—armed with some big guns.
