As a nudist, I found this book to be a very accurate description of social nudism (except no one uses the word colony). As someone who is nearing retirement, it is wonderful to have protagonists who would be peers.

It was entertaining and suspenseful. I am really looking forward to his next books.

Loved this story. Very fresh perspective. A good twist on the typical novel. Loved the references to southwest VA since that is where I am from also. Looking forward to the next one!
