This book takes a slight departure from the norm in the life of FDLE special agent Bill Tasker when he temporarily leaves Miami to investigate a death at Manatee Correctional near Gladesville. His boss feels he needs a break from his usual high-stress life of chasing dangerous criminals, plus an investigation at the prison will quiet any board of inquiry investigation into Tasker’s last high-profile case.

I so wanted to find a new author but finishing this book was a serious chore. The lead character is clueless and the constant attempt at romantic interest is adolescent at best. Truly more work than it was worth.

After shooting a bank robber, agent Bill Tasker is sent to a Florida prison to investigate the deaath of the son of a prominent developer. The problem is that people are trying to scare him off and his neighbor at the motel he is staying at is murdered. He is also in the process of a divorce. The only bright spot is Inspector Renee Chin but she becomes a suspect.
Started out okay but was downhill after the first chapter. I can generally read a book of this length in a day or so, but it took an entire week to finish it because I could only read a chapter at a time.
