Kevin English moved to Sanibel Island, Florida from the Washington, D. C. area starting a new life, leaving two failed marriages and a company he had founded. A lone companion, a sailboat bought new in Annapolis 15 years before…Sea Mistress, in need of repair; he wrestles with whether to sell or refurbish. A neighbor expressed interest in purchasing the boat and a week later is found dead, with crushed head, floating in the Intracoastal Waterway. An investigation opens the window into Southwest Florida´s drug trafficing, illegal immigrants and government corruption, where love and evil intertwine. All of these leave Kevin to question his sanity as he finds himself transported into a world where even the Sea Mistress seemingly comes to life with intentions of her own.
