In the second of the Jake McCall series of adventure novels, Don Beverly focuses on the smuggling activities of the Mexican cartels as they capitalize on the vacuum created along the extended and porous west coast of Florida by the politically driven obsession of law enforcement with the southwest and Rio Grande River. Unwittingly, McCall and his veteran fellow FBI agent, John Reed, unearth the existence of an extremely dangerous double agent whose obsession with assassinating the killer of his younger brother exposes him to almost certain death without their protection. The chase begins when security of the nuclear power plant at Crystal River, Florida, becomes a red herring used to distract attention from the old historic cross state barge canal used as a pipeline by the smugglers of drugs and illegals, literally beneath the condensation plumes from the plant's cooling towers. As the cartel war rages on, Jake and the other two eventually find themselves fighting for their lives on the southwest coast of Cuba and ultimately back east to Great Harbor Cay in the Bahamas. Just as you think things have settled down for McCall and his team, another unexpected event erupts and the chances of their survival threatened. All does not end well for some.

Don Beverly grew up on the shores of Lake Okeechobee in Palm Beach County, Florida, graduated from Vanderbilt University and the University of Florida Law School, beginning his career in Miami as a trial lawyer. He ultimately moved to West Palm Beach where he practices today, according to him, "as little as possible", while he pursues his lifelong love of writing, particularly about his own life experiences, which are numerous. Beverly, known to his beautiful wife, Molly, and his many friends simply as "DB", has achieved national prominence as a lawyer, has over five thousand hours as a pilot, has won a multitude of state and national cutting horse championships, enjoys skiing when at his home in Fairplay, Colorado, and operating his high-performance airboat in the Florida Everglades. During this multi-faceted career Beverly has written many articles about his interests as well as academic subjects, including successive editions of his legal treatise, Florida Trial Evidence. He has also served as a Director on the Boards of Chris Craft, Inc., the National Cutting Horse Association, Kirkwood Ski Resort, Inc., the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, the trial section of The Florida Bar, and as frequent Chair of the Professional Ethics Committee of The Florida Bar. Beverly was named South Florida's "Best Lawyer'' in the January, 1992, issue of Palm Beach Life.

In the second novel of the exciting Jake McCall adventure series, the author, Don Beverly, focuses on the illegal drug and human smuggling activities of the Mexican cartels as they continue to wage their war against America. McCall unearths a dangerous and revengeful double agent and unforeseen ally as the bloody battle wages from the Gulf coast of Florida into Cuba and the Bahamas.
