Comments & Further Information

This is an EX-LIBRARY book in poor condition.  Generally a bit of a mess   First US edition.  Bumped at head and tail of book spine.   Heavy rubbing to edges of boards.   Tape residue on boards.  Library stickers to front and rear pages.  Stamped “Madison Public Library” across top edges of pages, not affecting text.    Tanning to pages and some staining.  The dust jacket is complete and still shows the price but has nicks and creases to the edges and is generally grubby and a bit of a mess.

SYNOPSIS:  “When Chris Meadows witnesses the senseless death of an old friend and her young daughter in a chase between rival Cuban and Colombian drug gangs, he himself becomes a target, hunted by the gangs, danged as bait by the police.  Caught in the middle, determined for revenge, yet literally running for his life, Meadows is forced to undergo a crash course in survival as he submerges himself in the hair-trigger world of the cocaine cowboys.

With the help of two friends, he devises an intricate and desperate plan.  If it succeeds, it will strike at the heart of the dope traffic.  If it fails, three bodies will be found floating on the morning tide in Biscayne Bay…”
