A PI's vacation in the Everglades is disrupted by a deadly hurricane--and dangerous criminals--in this riveting read by an Edgar Award-winning author.

The peace and quiet of Max Freeman and Sherry Richards's vacation ends abruptly when Hurricane Simone slams into the Sunshine State. Sherry suffers a devastating injury in the storm, and the two are left stranded in the swamp.

But as they struggle to find help, they're thwarted by not only opportunistic crooks looking to benefit from the disaster, but also hired muscle from a powerful oil company hoping to protect a lethal secret--regardless of who stands in the way--in this "survival-of-the-fittest tale" by a master of mystery and suspense ( Newsday ).

"King vividly describes the hurricane's force and the different ways people respond to it. Sherry displays her grit and Max his ingenuity in a series of desperate gambles as the story builds to an explosive climax. This is a worthy addition to a Florida subgenre that includes Carl Hiaasen's Stormy Weather and Tim Dorsey's Hurricane Punch ." -- Publishers Weekly

This ebook contains an illustrated biography of the author featuring never-before-seen photos.

It was a fun to read. Although extra details at times but the ending will suprise you.
A great read while you ride the OC Transpo express bus to downtown ;)
