"They've taken our son, Marion." In all his life,
Marion "Doc" Ford has been passionately, irresponsibly in
love with only one woman. Her name was Pilar, and she was
married to a thuggish politico named Balserio in a country
where Ford was working undercover.
When Ford had to run, it was with a bounty on his head
and, unknown to him then, a legacy: Pilar was pregnant.
Now, many years later, out of power and consumed with the
desire for revenge, Balserio has kidnapped the boy and
taken him to his new home base in Florida. Ford hoped he'd
left his violent past behind him long ago, but he knows he
has no choice. The man has his son. . . .
Over the course of ten novels, Randy Wayne White's acclaim
has taken extraordinary leaps. "White is willing to take
risks," says the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, "which is why
he's one of the few deserving of the title writer." And in
Tampa Burn, the risks have never been greater.
