Put-In-Bay to Detroit to Key West
The story in brief:
A mysterious explosion destroys the bayfront home of investigative reporter Emerson Moore’s Aunt Anne in Put-in-Bay. His aunt has vanished. Was she kidnapped? Is there a connection to the nefarious activities by Russians running London-style taxis on Lake Erie’s South Bass Island and in Key West? Is her apparent abduction part of a vendetta against Moore?
Moore initially enlists island entertainer Mike “Mad Dog” Adams to help uncover the clues to finding his aunt. Their search takes them from a major scuffle in Detroit with drug lord Ruslan Zharkov to Key West where they recruit a team of easily sidetracked and hilarious reprobates led by local mischief-maker Chuck Meier.
As the tension mounts and the net tightens, Moore has the unsettling feeling that the worst has befallen his aunt. Along the way, Moore uncovers a shocking surprise as to who was behind her disappearance – someone who has a score to settle with Moore.
With the clock ticking, the stakes are stacked against successfully finding her alive. As Moore struggles emotionally just to get through each day with little progress, he finds himself on a collision course with the cunning Zharkov.
