Riassunto: Lynn Woo's laid-back existence in southwest Florida's Boca Grande is shattered as she finds her friend, newspaper publisher Lester Hood, looking at the wrong end of long knife. It's wielded by an islander who is upset with the publisher over his editorials on a raging local controversy which has the governor involved. But Lynn soon discovers there's a list of islanders who have it in for Lester....When Lynn and Lester narrowly escape the bombing of Lynn's boat while on a manatee survey, it becomes clear that the publisher is a target. Lynn's weaves her way through a cast of colorful, tropical characters on her way to shocking discoveries of greed, murder, lust and revenge, and a gut-wrenching, slam-bang conclusion.
L'autore: Born in Miami, Frank grew up in the central Florida city of Lakeland. Although he exempted the freshman English courses after arriving at Florida State, he decided to major in business and went on to become an entrepreneur. Frank founded two companies, one of which was twice named one of America's fastest growing small public companies. After selling out, he stood down as CEO, invested in other small companies, and served on their boards. He co-founded a bank and owns industrial and commercial real estate. A love for English and the written word never left Frank. In his companies, he wrote the ad copy, the business plans and the tough business letters and when more time became available his thoughts turned to fiction writing. His mother had always devoured mysteries, and after reading the Hardy Boys series as a boy, he began pilfering his mother's piles of Spillane, both MacDonalds, and Hammett. He was hooked for life. Just as the mystery genre was a clear choice for Frank, so was the setting for his own series: the island resort of Boca Grande. He was already a devotee of the Florida-based work of Stuart Kaminsky, Carl Hiaasen, and Randy Wayne White, plus he owned a second home in Boca Grande for many years. Besides, to Frank's knowledge, there had never been a mystery series based in Boca. Frank went to work and Boca Moon was born. (It wasn't anywhere near that easy, but that's another story.) Also born was Lynn Woo, Frank's second generation Chinese-American female protagonist who runs back country nature tours for her living, along with her regulars: Truck Kershaw, the island sheriff's deputy, and Lynn's artist lover, Rolf Berglund. The second book in the series (the word "Boca" will be in all titles) involves two fictitious, competing island weekly newspapers in Boca Grande. It features some intense local controversy and considerable skullduggery. Frank is an ardent conservationist, and when not writing, his passion is fly fishing, causing him to travel the world in pursuit of bonefish, tarpon, and river trout. He loves his wine cellar, which includes reds from Bordeaux, California and Italy, and he treasures time spent with his golf buddies. Frank and his wife Patti, an award winning artist, and their Cockapoo named Chattooga, live in their homes in Lakeland, Florida and Cashiers, North Carolina.
