Description

The danger isn't in the water.Working as a lifeguard at a Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets a woman he is wild about, the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way, except that she is used to caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he is used to burgers and flip-flops. She is a guest at the luxurious hotel, he lives above a garage.So when Ned's cousin offers to cut him in on a rich deal he's been commissioned to execute, Ned can't turn him down. The plan is simple, just a fast break-and-enter. The risk is high, and the reward is even greater: $5 million. But on the night of the heist, something goes devastatingly wrong. Who will save the lifeguard?Ned walks away from his job, his town, and the woman he's fallen in love with. Runs away, actually, knowing that only velocity and secrecy can save his life. But who is pursuing him? The FBI? Whoever sabotaged the heist? Or is it all somehow tied into his new love, and his oldest enemies?

Professional reviews

"Sexy, action-packed, with danger around every corner, this book engages listeners from the first moment. Billy Campbell heightens the tension with his pacing as he easily takes on the persona of Ned Kelly, lifeguard, thief, and ultimately, avenger. Told from the Ned's point of view, this story has it all: murder, mystery, art theft, romance, police chases, FBI agents, all among the wealthy community of Palm Beach. Campbell makes the listener feel Ned's emotions as the thief becomes a hero and then tries to impress the girl. Music, along with the occasional sound effects, such as gunshots and motorcycle chases, add to the fun and intrigue. D.L.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
