Publisher's Summary

When his father disappears in a freak boating accident, something smells fishy to ex-marine Billy Ryder. Now, after two decades away, Billy has come back to Pleasantville, Florida, a town whose surf is only rivaled by its share of sun.
Only Pleasantville isn't how he remembers it. A local gang has taken over the small fishing village and has scared the locals into submission, and worse, they just may have killed his dad for trying to stop them.
Now, if Billy wants to bring them to justice, he'll have to do something he hasn't done since his mother died. Step back on a boat.
That's okay though because after six tours in Iraq, Billy is really good at rooting out evil. And Pleasantville has a whole lot of evil.
Author's Note: If you're looking for a lazy slice of life Florida book don't buy this. If you want guns, guts, and action in the vein of Clive Cussler that takes place along the Florida Coast, buy this book.

Ready for prime time?

Our former Marine hero, Billy Ryder receives a strange phone call from his father; a call that signaled danger and the need for immediate action. Duffle packed Billy is on his way back to his home town of Pleasantville, Florida. Only when Billy gets home it’s not as he remembers. Gangs rule the streets and his father is somehow involved with them. As Billy has served six tours in Iraq he knows there is only one way to deal with the bad guys. He starts at the bottom and works his way up looking for his father. Billy has his work cut out for himself and only has his old girlfriend and a service buddy to rely on. This is a pretty good story with lots of action, but it seems a bit more suited for the young adult crowd rather than prime time. I liked the story, but I’m debating whether to continue with the series. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
