A Key West fishing captain takes on Florida’s drug lords in this “splendidly written” crime story coauthored by the #1 New York Times–bestselling novelist (The New York Times Book Review).
Though he is one of Key West’s most skilled fishing captains, Breeze Albury barely ekes out a living on the meager earnings of his trade. Meanwhile, Cuban and Colombian drug smugglers thrive all around—and they have their sights set on Albury and his fishing boat.
After the smugglers cut his three hundred trap lines and crush his livelihood, Albury is forced to run drugs to survive. But when he gets busted by the crooked chief of police and becomes a target of the drug machine’s brutal hit men, Albury becomes a vigilante on the seas of Florida, unleashing a fiery and relentless vengeance on the most dangerous criminals south of Miami.
Along with Powder Burn and A Death in China, this is one of the early suspense thrillers written by Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano, a writing team praised for their “fine flair for characters and settings” (Library Journal). Perfect for fans of the Doc Ford novels by Randy Wayne White, Trap Line is an action-packed preview of Hiaasen’s stellar Florida-set crime novels including Sick Puppy, Tourist Season, and Razor Girl.

Fast paced, could 't put it down!
Always An Enjoyable, Thrilling, & Funny Read
First time read on my iPad. I have enjoyed many of Hiaasen's paperback novels! This the my first novel with Bill Montalbano as the co-auther, it was a good addition to all his Florida writings. I'm a Florida resident that frequents the Keys. What is great for me, is how you weave the Florida scenery and culture to add the color to the emotion of the scenes and plots of the story, fantastic job. The only negative comment, I can't purchase an electronic book for the price of a paperback, that includes shipping. With the paperbacks I can read more novels. Maybe Apple can sell the books like they sell music on iTunes?? Maybe that would help their stock!
Ralph Mantia SR, keep up the good writing!
