Abstract:

"Craving some quiet time together, Max Freeman and Detective Sherry Richards retreat to Max's secluded shack deep in the Florida Everglades. No television. No cell phones. No neighbors. It's a perfect and much-needed escape from the daily grind. But when a violent hurricane rips through South Florida obliterating everything in its path, Max and Sherry's peaceful getaway turns into a desperate fight for survival. And the hurricane is only the beginning of the nightmare. With Sherry severely injured and no way to call for help, the couple begins a treacherous trek back to civilization, only to find that the hurricane's devastation is the least of their worries. In the wake of the storm, the isolation they originally sought soon becomes deadly as undesirables invade the Glades. Some have come to profit from the destruction and loot what remains, while others will stop at nothing to protect secrets. All are willing to kill to get what they came for, and Max and Sherry are smack in the line of fire"--Publisher's web site.
