This would be a great follow-up to Lake Placid.
We get to make a trek to the Everglades [have only been able to picture it after some scenes from CSI:Miami]where we get to meet the Native American Seminoles and Miccosukee Indian police in the person of Jesse Crane, who's wife was killed.
Now you want to talk about a jerk, Lorena Fortier[blonde bombshell] sure qulifies. Granted she was on a mission but had not given enough thought to who she was putting in jeapordy.
The great scene of the black eyed Alligator and Billy Ray Hare kind of makes your hair stand on end.
When Lorena finally gets to Harry's Alligator Farm and Museum she meets her co-workers Dr. Michael Preston [oh to get into his office and notes] - Harry, the owner, Jack Pine, a tall, well-muscled Seminole and Hugh Humphrey, a wiry blond handler[of the gators] from Australia -- and a tall, white haired man talking to them, Dr. Thiessen, a local vet and his helper, John Smith, extraordinarilly big. And there was Sally Dickerson, the head cashier and bookkeeper, she was always making up to Jesse.
With two friends of Jesse's shot to death, execution style and having to look for Billy Ray, the Miami-Dade homicide detective, Lars Garcia was in charge of the shooting case and someone Jesse had gone to college with, things were heating up.
Suddenly the incidents were looking suspicious - what did Lorena know and what was she looking for? Who was responsible for her father's death?
But first she had to find evidence that he was murdered. Who would believe her?
Jesse and Lars were trying to pull together the evidence that would make sense. Where did these giant Alligators come from? Lorena almost met one face to face.
Who could have enough money to make the evidence disappear? Excellentlly told tale - another female who makes nothing of bed hoping. Love? yeah, right.
Still a great read once you get past the "romance"?
