The story alternates between the little town of Bass Creek, Florida, where Pat and Jack enjoy a peaceful life and New York City, where small-time crook Benny Avril is accused of murder. Jack isn't sure of Benny's innocence but has a very personal reason for taking the case. Benny is the son of Rico, one of Jack's boyhood buddies.
The only parts of the book that troubled me were the chapters dealing with Pat's illness. I understand the author's reasons for this sub plot, but I see too much tragedy in real life. I read to escape. That being said, I strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys legal thrillers.
