The last time Florida motel owner George Moran was in the Dominican Republic he was in a uniform and people were shooting at him. Years later he's back looking for a girl he lost--and finding one he'd be better off without. But that doesn't matter to George while he's sleeping with beautiful Mary DeBoya--only when he discovers his lover is the wife of a former death squad general in exile with solid mob connections. Now George is bringing big trouble back with him to the Sunshine State--as his nostalgic trip down memory lane has tangled him up in a cat's cradle of drug deals, swindles, vengeance, and murder . . . and a love that's not only blind but lethal.
