In his thrilling debut novel, legal veteran McKee takes the reader on a white-knuckleride from corporate law offices to private islands where the cleanest thing is the laun-dered money. An insider’s take on ‘the Dirty South, ‘ with more twists and turns thana backwoods rattler’s spine.

This book captured my attention from the beginning and kept it throughout with twists and turns that were unexpected. Truly a great read with lots of intrigue and suspense from start to finish. The ending is a cliff hanger that leaves you anxious to find out what happens next.
