“Hang on and let Shadow Investigation immerse you in Florida’s crime scene-boats, drugs, and money…with some romance on the side. A 5-star, page-flipping, helluva read!” –Cam Torrens, author of Stable: Someone is Taking Them…
It’s 1987–a dangerous period during America’s War on Drugs, but DEA Special Agent Sam Dahl is comfortable- perhaps even a little bored–with his job seizing drug money from couriers passing through the daily hubbub of the LAX airport.
A friend begs Sam to find out what happened to her parents who disappeared while boating in the Gulf of Mexico. Although Sam possesses well-honed instincts and a keen eye for trouble, he knows nothing about missing-person cases. Eventually, Sam agrees to help and under the guise of taking a long overdue “vacation,” he jumps on a flight to the Sunshine State. Soon, his real job and the personal favor to his friend meld into a single investigation. But Sam gets more than he bargained for when he falls for a beautiful woman, then battles a drug kingpin intent on destroying him. And, if Sam isn’t careful, he could lose his livelihood and his life.
Christopher Amato, who spent a career as a federal agent, has written a fast-paced, high-stakes thriller that will be irresistible to readers, but will also stand up to the critical and discerning eye of law enforcement professionals.
