Southern Comfort by Fern Michaels
Tick Kelly lost his family to senseless murder. He left his old life behind and started writing books after several years of being drunk. He moved to one of the Keys off Florida. Kate Rush has quit her job with the DEA. She and her boss did not get along and she was tired of him taking all the credit for everyone else's work. Something is going on on Mango Key where Tick is living. Kate and her ex colleague Sandra go to check things out and watch a house at the end of the Key. Tick has also noticed things are not right at the house and when his brother Pete comes to visit they decide to check it out too. For Tick it's once a cop always a cop. Little do either the brothers or the girls know but the girls old boss is also down on Mango Key to find out what is really happening there.
Very fast very easy read like most of Michaels' books. The book flowed ok for me and took no time to read. Wish she would have explored the relationship between all the primary characters a little bit better though. Absolutely loved the bird!!! If you are a fan of Michaels then this is right up your alley.
