Breeze is on the move again, aboard Leap of Faith. There is trouble lurking in every port. He gets mixed up with a cocaine kingpin, talks his way out of a Cuban jail, and takes on a pretty refugee as a passenger. His trusty trawler takes him from the Keys to the Caribbean and even to the Chesapeake Bay, where he contemplates turning himself in to the authorities.
This is a timely tale that uses current events to shape the storyline - from our diplomatic relations with Cuba to the social impact of Fifty Shades of Grey. Robinson has proven himself to be a master of the nautical narrative. His adventure stories are part John D. MacDonald and part Papa Hemingway. Following Breeze has action to burn. You'll feel for Breeze as he struggles with his inner demons. You won't guess how it ends.

In the top half, a fun read.
It was entertaining. Some things don't make logical sense like why he didn't get himself out of financial and legal trouble when he initially got money from the wrongful death settlement in the first book.
He learned the proper pronunciation of Boca Grande and Captiva in the second book which is good. He needs to spend a few years living in Florida to get the accent or at least mellow his staccato voicing, but not a bad job on this second book.
Yes, it was fun.
Let me start out by saying that Ed Robinson is a fantastic author, I love Breeze as a character and have read several of Ed's books. The narration was painful to listen to, almost as if the narrator read the entire book one line/sentence at a time. Even speeding up the reading didn't make it more smooth. I definitely recommend listening to a sample to make sure you can stand the voice inflections before purchase. As for me, I'll go back to supporting the old trawler trash via purchases on my kindle.
This fiction trilogy was my first exposure to Ed Robinson. I loved this story. after going back and listening to his other books one can really see his growth as an author.
I'm having fun hanging out with this guy named Breeze. He's a loveable misfit. This time he goes big in money & boats. I am currently reading book 3 in this series on kindle because I'm impatient to wait for the audio version to arrive. It will be great like the others when it comes out on audio. Cool. Breeze.
