Stormy Weather and Cowboy Caviar Recipe

 Stormy Weather is a great time for curling up with a good book!

When a hurricane rages on the coast, wreaking havoc on the lives of the people who live there, the most dangerous threat in the winds and crashing waves may not come from nature. Clayton Ackerman has made a life chasing the hurricanes, storms and blizzards that at times ravage virtually every part of the nation. While covering a tropical storm that was battering the Gulf Coast, Ackerman has an altercation with a young woman that turns deadly and opens his eyes to the potential he’d overlooked for years.

Fort Lauderdale shows its sunshine sparkle and its darker underbelly in this I-95-speed novel about two over-the-hill cops, pushing sixty, back on the job, and out on the streets pulling the midnight shift. Aging beach bums, Duncan Moon and Jesse James Vacario, are just trying to make it to retirement, but a blithe serial killer, a society-column-respectable drug baron, along with hookers and druggies and killers, oh my, have other ideas. Welcome to South Florida during the hurricane season.
