Dusty MacMorgan and his pal Westy O'Davis are fishing along South Florida's Ten Thousand Island coast when they make a most unusual catch-a naked woman. And no sooner do they get her on board than a nearby trawler explodes.

#4 in the Dusky MacMorgan series. MacMorgan is the hero of a quickie series of 7 thrillers written in 1981-2 by Randy Wayne White as Randy Striker.

Dusky MacMorgan and Westy O'Davis are on a fishing holiday in the Ten Thousand Islands when they encounter a naked woman and an exploding boat. They take the woman home to an island enclave of feminists and find out from the Coast Guard that the exploded trawler is one of a series of destroyed drug runners.

Recommended if you like something action oriented and a quick read.

A pretty good one. The ending took me by surprise, and that's hard to do.

MacMorgan becomes embroiled with those attempting to profit from drugrunning by an unlikely group of women. Interesting back ground of the Ten THousand Island area in southwest Florida.
