Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As unpredictable as island trade winds, Bahamarama twists and turns its way to a stunning slam-bang conclusion and announces the arrival of Bob Morris, a writer who is sure to surprise and delight mystery fans for years to come.

 

STAYING ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW PATH...

Two years in a Florida federal prison on bogus charges has made former Miami Dolphins strong safety, Zack Chasteen, stir crazy. The first step toward getting his life back together is meeting up with his beautiful magazine mogul girlfriend, Barbara, on Harbor Island in the Bahamas.

 

ISN'T EASY...

But making it out of Florida proves to be more trouble than a gator with a toothache--and even deadlier when he discovers Barbara's been kidnapped and her ex-lover, a fashion photographer, murdered...a gang of Cuban thugs is on his tail, a nymphet named Tiffani is in his bed, and he's about to lose his idyllic family homestead, a place that has been home to generations of Chasteens.

 

WHEN SOMEONE HAS IT IN FOR YOU...

Once again, trouble has come knocking on Zack's door...with a sledgehammer. But this time he's fighting back, with the help of a Royal Bahamanian police superintendent, his trusted mystical Taino Indian friend Boggy, and a cast of the most colorful characters ever to step into the warm Bahama sun.

 

"Marvelous."

--Dave Barry, New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner

 

"This book stands out...a fun and engrossing read."

--Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Narrows
