Stan Davidson, restaurateur, teams up with his old army buddy who heads up FBI¡¯s Atlanta office to solve the murders of three federal prison wardens. Two parallel plots involve drug money and land schemes extorting the mayor of Savannah.
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) serves as the backdrop for this mystery thriller as Thomas Pierson is on the take for placing crooked wardens in federal prisons to mastermind his global, terrorist plot to cripple the U.S.¡¯s intelligence community. Pierson plots the escape of four cons, who assist him in Operation Black Widow, to sabotage an orbital satellite, instigate a nuclear disaster in south Texas, destroy peace talks in the Middle East, and threaten U.S. relations with Taiwan and China.
Scenery includes Georgia¡¯s barrier islands of Tybee, Saint Simons, and Jekyll. The personalities of the islanders provide an interesting cast of characters: the trustees, the moochers, old and new money,am artists, drunks and druggies.
