Jeremiah St. Cloud thought he was done with football forever. He played it at West Point, but his athletics career is long behind him. So is his military career. After a nine-year stint with the 108 Messengers, a special-ops organization, he has settled into Cable County, Florida. He thinks it is peaceful and predictable. He’s dead wrong.
Now, in his new capacity as a private investigator, St. Cloud’s been sucked back into football once again. The national-championship trophy at the University of Florida has gone missing. St. Cloud has been hired to find the thief, but he is sidetracked by a murder investigation. At the same time the trophy was stolen, a student was killed in the biotechnology building. How are the two connected? And what do they have to do with a south Florida sugar baron, the sultan of Qatar, and an honest-to-goodness cannibal in a shock collar?
Hartley Stevens has created an unforgettable adventure in the third book of his Cable Counties Thriller series. St. Cloud may be a hard-boiled detective, but the assorted misfits of Florida will give him a run for his money.
