In a panic, they report it to authorities -but only half. Theyre told they can keep the money if no one claims it in 90 days. Confident that dealers will never claim the money, they make plans for their fortune. The furious dealers send assassins to reclaim their money. The couple cant run to the police because they concealed half. The suspense builds as villains create a nightmare for the couple in their supposed paradise.Imagine every crime cliche turned upside down: The crime boss is the opposite of a typical drug lord. Our intelligent hero is the wife, not her insecure husband. The cops arent fearless and the good guys have uncertain ethics. The refreshingly-different novel has villains reminiscent of Thomas Harriss Hannibal Lechter, balanced with satire in the style of Carl Hiaasen. The book depicts criminal violence with mature language and themes.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Rich Wickliffe is a 34-year resident of South Florida who loves to spend time with his family on any sandy landmass with hammocks and blenders. In addition to fiction, Rich has published industry articles on unique white-collar crime. Hes lectured at investigative and law enforcement groups that included FBI, Coast Guard and NCIS -who have all helped with meticulous research. Rich also paints tropical art that has been exhibited in Fort Lauderdales Broward Art Guild. He likes to describe his art as If Norman Rockwell drank margaritas while painting.
