Overview

Special Agent Joel Kenyon, just out of the U.S. Customs Academy, has been assigned to the badlands of drug enforcement, the Florida Keys. In a short time he must adjust himself to lifestyle of sandals, Jimmy Buffett and the quest for the perfect frozen drink.

Set in 1984, Mid Ocean will take you to the Caribbean wild west. A place tourists never see, where, for centuries, fortunes have been won and lost along the treacherous reefs; a haven divers and fishermen during the day; a conduit for smugglers at night. With the lure of easy money and the temptations available to those in authority, the lines of right and wrong are often blurred, testing even the strongest moral compass in an atmosphere where navigating a bad course can be deadly. In the end, Joel will question everyone, including himself in his quest for what is right and what is true.

Mid Ocean was inspired by real-life events.

    A Wild Ride, Caribbean Style. Two thumbs up!!

    To be honest, I was attracted to this book by its cover. What I didn't know was how much I would actually like (love) this story. Cimino is a brilliant story teller and his detail adds to the realism that will give you sand in your shoes and a keys buzz that is unique to the latitude. I recommend this book to anyone who has a flair for the islands or wants to develop one.

    Mid Ocean is my new favorite! T. Rafael Cimino gets two thumbs up!

    I just got "Mid Ocean" by T. Rafael Cimino for Christmas and I couldn't put it down. I just finished it a few hours ago. I cried.. I laughed... It kept my attention throughout the whole read. I'm home for winter break from college and I thought the last thing I wanted to do was read some more but I love this author! My Dad just borrowed it from me and he's still reading.

    This takes me to the Keys and back in one piece!

    I have been familiar with this author for several years. I met him in 06 and found him to be interesting and a breath of fresh air for an industry that so lacked fresh air. While I admired his writing skills as they appeared on the screen, I never pictured him as a novelist. Shame on me. Mid Ocean is this year's breath of fresh air. Despite the fact that the story was set during a time when I was three years old, I now felt as though I lived every bit of it. Great narrative, colorful characters, and many surprises that I found to be entertaining. Bravo! Mr. Cimino. I can't wait for your next.

    Piece of Art

    I was captivated by the first page and blown away with the ending. I am very critical of American fiction writers but found this book to be very realistic and straight forward. I understand that a film is in the works and cant wait for that to happen. I strongly recommend this book.
