Description
The quaint island of Bimini in the Bahamas Islands is a fisherman’s paradise, a place to relax and kick back where no one cares what you do as long as you are behaving yourself, having a good time, and spending a little cash. Beneath the peaceful and friendly facade of this tropical paradise is a sinister organization that deals in human misery. Ex-con Rohan Pinkney, known as Rooster, leads a band of criminals whose brand of commerce includes drug running and refugee smuggling. Virgil Price is the top op in all of the Bahamas Islands. He and his highly-trained, squared away troops launch a plan to infiltrate the crime syndicate ad take down the organization, along with $100,000,000 in illegal contraband. Max Carson and his teenage sons, Gaffer and P.J., are frequent visitors to Bimini. While P.J. spends his days playing video games and beaching it, Max and Gaffer are addicted to the lure of fishing and spend their days practicing their skills. Their sport fishing boat, Bimini Twist, is loaded with sophisticated fishing equipment and is capable of “tickling the bottom” a half mile deep. When Max is asked by the Royal Bahamas Defense Force to keep an eye on things offshore and report any observations of Rooster’s activities, the action begins and never lets up. Drug smugglers, shark attacks, offshore powerboat races and high-speed chases over the waves keep this story moving along at breakneck speed. Rooster conducts his business, spreading misery wherever he goes and intimidating the peaceful citizens of the island. But he doesn’t know about the forces that are conspiring to take him down. He’s in way over his head. Like a good adventure story? Take a deep breath, strap yourself in and enjoy the action. Bimini Twist takes you on an adventure like non other in literature today.
