<P>Police detective Barrett Raines needs to prove to others and perhaps more so to himself that he is as good as any white man at the job. When the Florida legislature created the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, an in-state FBI unit, Barrett was asked to join. He was well aware of the prestigious honor bestowed upon him and saw the job as a chance to prove himself.. Barrett accompanied by his beloved wife Laura Anne and their twin sons left his hometown of Deacon Beach to move to Tallahassee, headquarters of the FDLE. Ultimately, Laura Anne separated from her spouse, hating the big city and returning to Deacon Beach with the two boys. <P>Barrett began drinking excessively and screwing up on the job. He was nearly fired but he and his partner were instead given a seven-year-old case to solve. Two men robbed a bank but everything except an aluminum key was recovered. One thief went to jail, but upon his release was murdered by an international assassin who wants the aluminum case back. The criminal¿s death awakens Barrett awakens Barrett¿s hunting instincts and he heads to DEAD MAN¿S BAY in search of clues and redemption. <P>Darryl Wimberley is an author who provides the audience with an action-packed police procedural that has readers wondering what will happen next. The flawed hero is vulnerable, but not afraid to speak out when he fears something. This adds up to the total package (aside from Mr. Lex Luger) of an admirable role model. The support cast augments the tale with likable individuals that lead fans to wanting more Barrett Raines tales. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
