Another "John D. MacD" wannabee

So how many John D. MacDonald wannabees does the world need? Since pretty much everybody loves Travis McGee yarns why not keep re-creating new "Travis's". Tweak the lovable rogue / former SEAL / SpecOps / Detective and, in this case, put him in "the Keys" and bring on the bad guys and honeys galore.

I count at least 3-4 authors making various levels of "a living" turning out these modern day dime novels. And I keep reading them.

This one has, IMO, an annoying narrator but I plodded past him. Not my favorite faux-Travis but passable.

medium story monotonous narrator

The story was fun and somewhat amusing. The narrator ruined the experience. I kept thinking he would be better suited for soothing self help books and low behold that's what his previous works included. Not going to continue the series because of this.
