       Additional Information  
     
      Descended from pioneer stock, the Bateses are an aristocratic Floridian family with vast holdings in real estate and mining. When matriarch Abigail Bates is discovered drowned in the Peace River, a chain of events is set into motion, embroiling Thorn with a family he never knew he had and a fortune he doesnít necessarily want.


    Thorn is leading a fishing expedition into the isolated lakes and mangrove swamps of Hellís Bay when Abigailís son and beautiful granddaughter arrive, claiming Thorn as a long-lost relative and asking him to solve the womanís murder. Little do they know that the killer is already on their trail. Soon their houseboat becomes a precarious island of safety in a landscape of escalating violence. What does the killer want? And why is their predator so enraged, determined to kill them all no matter what the cost?
