Publisher Comments:

The danger isn't in the water.

Working as a lifeguard at a Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets a woman he is wild about, the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way - except that she is used to caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he is used to burgers and flip-flops. She is a guest at the luxurious hotel - he lives above a garage.

So when Ned's cousin offers to cut him in on a rich deal he's been commissioned to execute, Ned can't turn him down. The plan is simple, just a fast break-and-enter. The risk is high, and the reward is even greater--$5 million. But on the night of the heist, something goes devastatingly wrong. Who will save the lifeguard?

Ned walks away from his job, his town, and the woman he's fallen in love with. Runs away, actually, knowing that only velocity and secrecy can save his life. But who is pursuing him? The FBI? Whoever sabotaged the heist? Or is it all somehow tied into his new love - and his oldest enemies?

Synopsis:

Working as a lifeguard at a Florida resort, Ned Kelly finds the woman of his dreams. The only thing he needs is money. So when his friends offer to cut him in on a deal that promises $1,000,000 each, how can he turn it down? The plan is a simple fast break-and-enter to grab painting from a rich collector. But they find the paintings already gone. Before Ned can figure out who set them up, his friends are brutally executed. Ned is the prime target of the killers and the FBI. With no one to trust, Ned must avenge his friends and clear his name.
