From the Publisher
The last time Florida motel owner George Moran was in the Dominican Republic he was in a uniform and people were shooting at him. Years later he''s back looking for a girl he lost-and finding one he''d be better off without. But that doesn''t matter to George while he''s sleeping with beautiful Mary DeBoya-only when he discovers his lover is the wife of a former death squad general in exile with solid mob connections. Now George is bringing big trouble back with him to the Sunshine State-as his nostalgic trip down memory lane has tangled him up in a cat''s cradle of drug deals, swindles, vengeance, and murder . . . and a love that''s not only blind but lethal.
