Jamaica Me DeadBook - 2005
Attending a posh party at Florida Field, Zack Chasteen finds a fake bomb strapped beneath the chair of Darcy Whitehall, owner of a chain of anything-goes Caribbean resorts, and is hired by Monk DeVane, a former Miami Dolphins teammate and Darcy's employee, to find out who is responsible and to protect Darcy from an unknown enemy. By the author of Bahamarama. Reprint.
TOO HOT TO HANDLE
Former Miami Dolphin Zack Chasteen had a short pro career, but he's got a long memory. When his old gridiron pal Monk DeVane asks him to help beef up security at Libido, an X-rated Jamaican resort, Zack agrees. But he soon regrets it when he finds the resort owner quite literally on the hot seat--sitting on a bomb that will detonate if he so much as twitches a muscle…
Things get even more explosive at the adult playground of Libido, where tourists indulge in sun and plenty of bawdy fun. From Montego Bay to the island's back country, Zack Chasteen descends into Jamaica's heart of darkness and its bloody political scene, bringing along his inscrutable sidekick Boggy, a Taino Indian shaman. With bullets flying and people dying, Zack must seek out the truth and settle some scores before his own life goes boom.
