“A thriller as fast as the wind...a bracing rush, as breathtaking as hitting the Gulf waters on a chill December morning.” – Tampa Tribune
Someone ripped off Jake Lassiter’s favorite client, stealing $1.6 million in negotiable bonds. Then Jake’s old buddy, Berto Zaldivar, a lawyer-turned-smuggler, ends up dead. The trail of clues from both crimes leads to a sinister professional windsurfer and his companion, Lila Summers, a champion athlete and a lethal femme fatale. Jake chases the missing money and the mysterious woman from Miami to Bimini to Maui where, in an explosive finale, he learns lessons never taught on the football field or in the courtroom.
