When a young immigrant woman and an exotic dancer are forced to flee men with guns and have no place to hide, Richard Noggin, PI, can't turn his back - even if helping out makes him a target. Richard plans to impress an aspiring politician by taking on a big white-collar case that could take him from the streets to an air-conditioned office. Instead, he's handed a cold case and quickly finds himself sucked into a shadowy world of sex, secrets and murder. Marked for a bullet and stretched thin by his investigations, Richard reluctantly teams up with the unlikely, brassy custodian of the young woman on the run. With bodies piling up, Richard and his companion are forced to go undercover in a most unlikely locale: the Leisure Lagoon, a nudist resort. Going undercover in this instance will mean going uncovered...but lives are at stake - and this Naked Eye will have to juggle to keep his balls in the air and connect the dots before anyone else is murdered. As his pulse-quickening quest for answers leads from the dark corners of Orlando's Little Saigon to the sunny exposure of the Leisure Lagoon, Richard will be put to the test. Just how much will this Naked Eye have to bear...or bare?

Great story for Central Floridians
Summary a tad misleading?
Struggling with how to review this book. I think it was overall well written (though the protagonists seem to get away with offing bad people with little scrutiny), and the narration was quite good. From the reviews and the summary, though, I was expecting something a little lighter. While I get that there's nothing light at all about child sex trafficking, I had it in my head that the characters were going to banter more, be more playful (or at least playfully caustic), just something more to counteract the seriousness of the plot line. It never happened. Wasn't a bad read/listen, I just personally need more escapism from the evils of the world that the author tackles in her plot line. Ambivalent as to picking up the (presumed) next in the series.
