The narrator, his business friend Chancy, and Rolf, a weathered fisherman acquaintance, embark on a Bahamian fishing trip. Nearly capsized after a trophy barracuda injures Rolf, the trio wind up stranded back on shore. Meanwhile, rival Jamaican drug traffickers have invaded Elbow Cay, seizing hostages amid a spree of violence and pillaging. After a run-in with smugglers of exotic animals, the guys (along with a waitress and a female veterinarian) search for Chancy's wife, whom they fear has been kidnapped by the drug gangs. Lots of action and memorable characters, but the narrator's existential wonderings are the real draw. Hall is the author of The Blue-Eyed Indian and Wildcat Did Growl. An intriguing thriller for larger collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
