Nick Seven and Felicia Hagens have found a great place to get away from the CIA. Who wouldn’t want to get transported to a neon jungle in South Beach Florida? It is a laidback community which has a lot of wonderful qualities that would make it enticing and even entrancing. But for how long can they really escape?
The music industry in this Florida Keys neighborhood is anything but quiet. There is a real dark and sinister underbelly to it. Jimmie Rae, a popular singer in this neighbourhood wants to free himself from Turk Morgan, a crooked music giant who controls the whole entertainment industry in the Miami region.
If this wasn’t bad enough, Jimmie’s girlfriend, Felicia is under Turk’s control and he needs to free her from him before its too late. To do so, Nick has to go undercover. How long can he keep his pretenses up?
There is also an underlying love story in the middle of this wonderful tale. It is a love that knows no boundaries and that is intense and authentic. I just love stories like this!
This is a story that I will be reading and rereading over the fall months. I always love Tim Smith’s books. I have read quite a few of them. And this one didn’t disappoint.
