Vengeful Sheriff Buck White matches wits with the devilishly clever criminal, Ivan Norodny, as he tracks the man responsible for the murder of his ex-wife and investigates a series of disappearances and killings in Miami
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A wildlife officer hauled in the corpse from a stagnant pool near the Fakahatchee Strand in the Everglades. This "floater" was the ex-wife of Sheriff Buck White, now strangled and discarded in Florida's all-purpose dumping ground.
White's remorse and vow of vengeance are diverted by a series of missing person cases. The Miami police feel that a murder-and-larceny team is using White's jurisdiction as a hiding place for themselves. They are also using it for the shallow graves of their victims.
White's tenacious investigation uncovers a pattern behind the series of murders threatening the lonely--and wealthy--women of Florida's Gold Coast. The killer is a man of uncommon resource and wicked intelligence. But he may be wrong to underestimate a hard working country lawman motivated by revenge.
In this stunning debut, crime reporter Joseph Koenig profiles society's most elusive and vicious criminal: the serial killer. The author explores the cunning and cruel reason of a murderer--and of the man who tracks him down--in the remote and savage beauty of the Everglades bayous.
"This Koenig has the Florida scene nailed. And it is not the poster scene revealed to the annual snowbirds. I have seen it and I believe it . . . That finale makes the hair on
the back of the hands stand up and tingle."
--JOHN D. MACDONALD-- author of The Lonely Silver Rain and Barrier Island
"I like this story, like it a lot. Sheriff white is my kind of cop."
--WILLIAM J. CAUNITZ author of One Police Plaza and Suspects
"An impressive debut. Mr. Koenig is a new writer who establishes his territory between James M. Cain and In The Heat Of The Night."
--MARTIN CRUZ SMITH-- author of Gorky Park and Stallion Gate
"A quirky and powerfrully disturbing shocker."
LAWRENCE BLOCK-- author of Eight Million Ways To Die and When The Sacred Ginmill Closes
