Florida has two seasons. The rainy season brings hurricanes, the dry season delivers tourists---and both can be nasty.Sherri Travis is tending bar at the Bath and Tennis Club where two women have been murdered and every night is fright night for the millionaire weirdos. A rich socialite, who comes in daily for her quota of side-cars, decides to commit suicide by being the next victim, but first she has to decide who the murderer is. There are more than enough suspects among the staff. At the head of the list is a charming chef, who wants to cook up something hot with Sherri. There is also a gardener lurking behind the bushes, and a pool boy who delivers more than fresh towels.Sherri pours the drinks and listens to the stories, trying to make sense of it all as victims and their predators prowl the luxurious complex, searching for what they need. Any one of them could hold the secret to the reign of terror. With Hurricane Myrna raging into the Gulf, a murdered tourist at her feet, and a fallen palm tree blocking the only road off the island, Sherri battles to stay alive while the murderer closes in.
