The year is 1962. Dr. Molly McCormick, a young female physician, has been attacked by a deranged psychiatric patient and has suffered physical and psychological damage. She is recovering at her grandfather’s home which is located on an island off the Southwest coast of Florida. Such a great location with one problem . . . it is just a hop and skip to Cuba where Fidel Castro has just pointed Russian missiles in the direction of the United States. The Cuban Missile Crisis is heating up and the whole world is on pins and needles.Dr. McCormick’s grandfather, a retired U. S. Navy Captain, Intelligence Officer, is neck deep in stopping arms from being sent to the rebels in Cuba. Recently he has learned that someone on his island is preparing to supply the rebels with a stash of sulfur mustard, a chemical that can be converted to mustard gas. This weapon can be spread many ways and will cause grave illness and possibly death to thousands. Oh, and just one more small issue . . . Dr. McCormick’s attacker is still out there . . .and has promised to “find her” again!
Down to the sea we go – the steamy sea – the islands with
swamps and mosquitoes and noseeums – all ready to drink your blood…
In this novel we go back to the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis
and the islands that are just next door to Cuba.
There are some interesting hints of future storylines coming
through in the male characters and it will be disappointing if the series doesn’t
follow them up.
The female character – Molly- still lacks definition for me,
not yet fully formed but hopefully she will develop. Her final choice of career
was obvious from the visit she made to an outlying island so no surprises
This is not the first book by this author that I have read,
but the one with most potential for me.
