 ENJOYING THE EASY ISLAND LIFE…

Lynn Woo’s laid-back existence in southwest Florida’s Boca Grande is shattered as she finds her friend, newspaper publisher Lester Hood, looking at the wrong end of long knife. It’s wielded by an islander who is upset with the publisher over his editorials on a raging local controversy which has the governor involved. But Lynn soon discovers there’s a list of islanders who have it in for Lester.

ISN’T SO EASY…

When Lynn and Lester narrowly escape the bombing of Lynn’s boat while on a manatee survey, it becomes clear that the publisher is a target. When he falls ill and dies in the emergency room of “congestive heart failure” it doesn’t pass Lynn’s sniff test. She and her lover Rolf Berglund, and best friend and sheriff’s deputy, Truck Kershaw, dig for the truth.

WHEN SOMEONE’S TRYING KILL YOU…

But Lynn’s digging makes her a target which hardens her conviction that Lester did not die of natural causes. She weaves her way through a cast of colorful, tropical characters on her way to shocking discoveries of greed, lust and revenge, and a gut-wrenching, slam-bang conclusion.

DEATH COMES CALLING…
Lynn Woo’s former commanding officer in Naval Intelligence is vacationing on a tropical island in Southwest Florida. Retired Admiral Whit Jenkins’ son-in-law chooses the wrong night to take his infrared camera to the salty back bays in search of panthers. He pays for it with his life and Lynn discovers his murdered, mutilated body strung between two mangrove trees. It’s been years since she’s seen the result of violent death and she hasn’t missed it.

BUT THE CALL MUST BE ANSWERED…
But now Lynn must tell Jenkins about the murder, and, ignoring her new back bay nature tour business, she plunges into the investigation. Along the way, Lynn deals with more murders, live alligators, seamy commercial fishermen, a fiery Seminole Indian girl, and attempts on her own life. She’s helped by her best island friend, who is a mammoth, black sheriff’s deputy, and her lover, who is a hand-washing germ freak. It all happens in a real place – Boca Grande – a tony tropical island on Florida’s southwest coast. It’s home to coconut palms and banyans, pelicans and iguanas, and rich people who mingle freely with the island folks.

AND REDEMPTION HAS A PRICE…
When Lynn Woo closes in on a den of greed and ego which will stop at nothing, including murder, she’s met with a jolting surprise ending to this twisting tale of tropical skullduggery.
