When a serial killer shows up on Longboat Key, Florida after a twelve year absence, Matt Royal is stymied. The first woman killed on Longboat Key has ties to a secretive government agency for which Matt's best friend Jock Algren works. Was this a coincidence or was she a targeted kill? Matt's friend, Longboat Key detective Jennifer Diane (J.D.) Duncan investigates the murders but also seems to be a target of the killer. Why? And where has the killer been for the past twelve years? And why has he come to Longboat Key when his earlier kills were all in Miami? The mystery deepens when Guatemalan gang-bangers try to kill Matt and J.D. and suspicions grow that Mexican drug cartels are somehow involved. The director of Jock's agency orders him to do whatever is necessary to find the killer because of the death of the woman with connections to the agency. Will Jock simply take out the murderer or allow J.D. and the law to arrest, try and convict the bad guys? Matt's life is further complicated by J.D.'s growing dissatisfaction with island living and her thoughts of returning to Miami.

About the Author:

H. Terrell Griffin is the award winning author of ten Matt Royal mysteries set on Florida's Suncoast. Prior to succumbing to his lifelong yen to write, he earned degrees in history and law from Mercer University and was a board certified civil trial lawyer based in Orlando for thirty-eight years. In his youth, Terry served three years in the U.S. Army, much of it as a medic in an Armored Cavalry regiment on the East German border.

From Booklist:

Matt Royal, the retired attorney trying to live the beach-bum life in Longboat Key, Florida, once again steps into trouble. Local police detective J. D. Duncan, who is also Matt’s friend (and, he wishes, something more than that), believes a long-disappeared serial killer, the same one she was tracking when she was a Miami cop a dozen years ago, has resurfaced. Even more mysterious, one of the killer’s victims is connected to the top-secret government agency with which Jock Algren, Matt’s other close friend, is employed. Jock’s people are pretty upset about it, but here’s the question: Will they hunt down and eliminate the perp before J. D. and Matt can find him? A mixture of straight-ahead action and laid-back John D. MacDonald–style narrative (Matt is definitely a hero in the Travis McGee mold), this agreeable tale will be a treat for Griffin’s growing readership as well as Travis fans. --David Pitt
