Alex Rhoad left the mayhem of being an NYPD detective to live the simple, quiet life running a restaurant in a small Florida town. His new bartender, Gia, had what his business needed, looks, personality, and smarts. She also had a secret; she was on the run. When her pursuers learn she is with Alex, he is dragged into being on the run with her and the only way he can get himself out of trouble, and stay alive, is to help her get out of the situation.
Gia was the unwitting witness to a murder and failed drug deal and everyone involved wants to find her. Rogue cops want her dead, drug dealers want the cocaine, corrupt county officials want the money, and their only lead in getting what they want is through Alex and Gia. They come after them using every means available. Nothing is out-of-bounds including kidnapping, assault, and even death.
Alex must deal Gia and himself out of trouble by staying one-step ahead of all of them in a chase by airplane, boat, and car that crosses Florida from coast to coast, wends from the Keys to the Palm Beaches, and travels from Miami to Mexico. One misstep would put both of them in mortal danger.
Using his experience, intellect, and help from friends, Alex sets the drug dealers up to be arrested, the rogue cops to be investigated, and the corrupt government officials to be exposed for their misdeeds. In the process, he loses everything he’s worked for, his house, his boat, and his restaurant, but if his plans work as intended, he can wind up with the spoils from the deal. It seems no one can figure out how much money was actually involved or where it all went. The only ones that know the whole story are Alex and Gia, and they’re not revealing it to anyone.

I live on a boat in a marina with my wife. We enjoy the ambience, friendliness, and leisurely lifestyle living afloat. It gives me time to thoroughly contemplate my stories and work out the plot details and emotions of my characters.
I write with the intention of always having my characters react to situations in a realistic manner. Many of my stories have a basis in a real-life event, even if they are fictionalized. I want my readers to identify with my characters motivations even if they would never find themselves in a similar situation.
My characters almost always find themselves in a strange situation not of their making. They usually have to work through a new experience or dilemma they had never faced previously. I like to show that they learn and grow from the experience and that they become better from having gone through it.
