Bruce Cable, the owner of Bay Books, is unwillingly thrust into investigating a murder for hire after his author friend Nelson Kerr is killed during a hurricane. With state and local police stalling and a good deal of evidence washed away in the storm, Bruce hired a private firm to help him sort out how Nelson’s latest novel, a book about a questionable drug and Medicare fraud in nursing homes, might have contributed to his murder.

Even though the Florida governor issued a mandatory evacuation order in advance of Hurricane Leo’s landfall, Bruce, Nick Sutton, a teen who worked in Bruce’s store, and their writer friends Nelson and Andrew “Bob” Cobb decided to remain on Camino Island. The morning after the storm, the island was badly battered with trees down and electricity out. Bruce learned the worst when a policeman told him that Nelson was dead. It appeared he was hit in the head by flying debris. Bruce was needed to identify Nelson’s body.

The only reservation is the easy approach to bedding women by one of the characters. Also Bruce reforms and marries.
