BLOOD ISLAND By H. Terrell Griffin

Matt Royal is a retired lawyer who finds the good life in Florida.  Royal ruined his marriage to the love of his life because of too much booze and too many late nights.  He finds his life in danger when his ex-wife comes to ask him to look into the disappearance of her oldest daughter.  Suddenly there are car chases, gun fights and bodies dropping everywhere.  Mix in a religious cult, a private island and some really bad guys, you have the right mix for this rock 'em, sock 'em action novel set in Florida.

 I like Terry Griffin's insider perspective in this novel.  He is a Florida resident who practiced law in Orlando, but he says he is not Matt Royal.  He told me that Matt Royal is "who he would like to be."  

I enjoyed the novel and the action, but I admit to enjoying a good mystery.  What do you think?
