A fishing guide and part-time investigator, Hannah Smith
is a tall, strong Florida woman descended from many
generations of tall, strong Florida women. But the problem
before her now is much older even than that. And its
consequences are lethal.
Five hundred years ago, Spanish conquistadors planted the
first orange seeds in Florida, but now the billion-dollar
industry is in trouble. The trees are dying, weakened by
infestation and genetic manipulation, and the only
solution might be somehow, somewhere to find sample of the
original root stock.
No one is better equipped to traverse the swamps and murky
backcountry of Florida than Hannah, but once word leaks
out of her quest, the trouble begins. “There are people
who will kill to find a direct descendant of those first
seeds,” she is warned—and it looks like those words may be
all too prophetic.
That is, if the secrets she discovers in the Florida wild
about a twenty-year-old murder don’t kill her first.
Or the fifteen-foot-long Burmese python.
