Kirkus Reviews
A job involving threatening letters and e-mails lands private eye Harry Brock chest deep in alligator-infested waters. Colleen McGraw, President of the Stoneman Douglas Alliance, wants Harry Brock (Two in the Churchyard Lie, 2007, etc.) to investigate a series of threats. When a biologist working with the group is found dead in the Okalatchee River, her fears prove justified. Like the biologist, the Okalatchee, poisoned by chemicals and fertilizer runoff, is dying. A loose coalition of river dwellers, property developers, agricultural interests and private property groups are fighting to keep the dismal information quiet. Harry acquires another problem when his daughter Sarah, whose parents' bitter divorce and mother's hostility have kept him from seeing her for years, arrives at his home on Bartram's Hammock. Pregnant and planning to leave her husband, she seeks Harry's support. Undeterred by violence, more killings and an attempt on Sarah's life, Harry digs deep into the background of an old Southwestern Florida family with a vested interest in the river. The beauty of the Hammock, the calm of Harry's wonderfully quirky neighbor Tucker LaBeau and his amusingly multitalented mule and coonhound soon work their magic on Sarah. But she and Harry must survive ever more determined attempts on their lives before she can conquer her own problems and Harry can wrap up the case. Another tautly plotted and altogether delightful ode to Florida's forgotten backcountry.

    The story line is excellent

    As the president of the Stoneman Douglas Alliance whose goal is to save the Okalatchee River from becoming a dead zone, Colleen McGraw expected some threats however the emails and letters are increasing and turning nastier and now rattlesnakes have been dumped in her mailbox. She asks private investigator Harry Brock to find out who is trying to stop her campaign.------------------- When the murdered body of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission senior ichthyologist Joyce Fields is found in the river, the Tequita County Sheriff¿s Department, which has done nothing re Colleen¿s complaints, must investigate the homicide. Joyce was making a case that the river is nearly dead having been polluted by chemical and fertilizer runoff. Harry finds several groups including locals doing everything to bury the toxic information. He also has personal issues as his estranged pregnant daughter Sarah comes to see him for the first time in years and he is attracted to a member of the Alliance both of his women in danger.----------------- The story line is excellent with the prime focus being development and property rights vs. environment and conservation. Adding to the overall fun are Harry¿s neighbors Tucker, Oh Brother and Sanchez as they enchant Sarah and the readers. Fans will enjoy his Southwest Florida thriller and seek Brock¿s previous cases (see NOW COMES DEATH and TWO IN THE CHURCHYARD LIE). --------------- Harriet Klausner
