Largo's first-hand knowledge of living in an undercover family, survival training in extreme environmentsFrom Library Journal:
Largo here revisits the characters of his first novel of 20 years ago, Southern Comfort (LJ 6/15/77). When renegade CIA agents James and Lily Curan fake their own deaths in Haiti in order to go underground, James's cousin Tucker, a ne'er-do-well alcoholic living on the fringes of the Florida Everglades, adopts the couple's twins and rears them as his own. The Curans' decision to surface after ten years of covert activity with drug smugglers in the Miami area creates a crisis situation for the CIA, the smugglers, and the family. Kidnapping, murder, police entrapment, a swamp fire, deadly snakes, hungry alligators, and a couple of love storiesAthis has all the elements of a first-rate novel of adventure and intrigue. It's a fun read, though it cries out for the attention of a good editor to tighten up the story and clarify some areas of confusion.AThomas L. Kilpatrick, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale
