My brother Johnny lives in Florida. He wants to keep it that way. To keep living, that is - the Florida part is negotiable.
What does family mean? Everything? Nothing?
Private detective Stevie McCabe finds himself 5000 miles from home answering a distress call, deserting the hard streets of Glasgow for the seductive palms of Florida’s Gulf coast. Brother Johnny is in trouble with the law, guilty of theft and fraud through a corrupt pyramid scheme, left to face the consequences by a partner who crashed his Cessna into a swamp, but that’s not Johnny’s biggest problem...his problem is that he laundered funds through the venture for a druglord, a high-value target for police. So: face the penitentiary for his financial crimes...or plea bargain for deportation by incriminating the gangster at the risk of his own life?
But it’s not just family loyalty that drives Stevie McCabe, because some of his brother’s fraud victims were organised crime figures from back home in Glasgow – and he “helpfully” mentioned Stevie’s name while doing it: both brothers are now threatened equally by law and disorder in two countries as cultures blend and clash in a melee where there are no victories, only flavors of defeat.
...and a hurricane is raging across the Gulf towards Florida, threatening to blow everybody’s plans away...
