About the Book

It is the 1960s as drugs and gambling transform what was once a quiet cattle town into a shooting gallery.

Theo is a seasoned hitman who has become used to lying in silent wait for his next victim. After he murders his latest target and disposes of his body in the Everglades, two young law enforcement officers and a crusty retired sheriff begin investigating. After Sheriff Charlie, a living legend in South Florida, partners with his less experienced counterparts, detectives Dale Norris and Clem Winke, they begin to unravel the motive for the murders of some of the town’s leading citizens. While their investigations take them from the small town of Davie into the dark hole of organized crime plaguing South Florida, Theo falls in love and quietly plans his next murder. Will the sheriff and his counterparts be able to find the killer before he strikes again?

In this murder mystery, three South Florida law enforcement professionals must partner together to find and stop a determined hit man before he takes out more innocent victims.
