(This book is part one in a series of three)
Catastrophic flooding plunged the Earth into a harsh existence hundreds of years ago. Unable to bear the weight of the chaos, societal structures broke down and domes were constructed to preserve the coastal cities as the surrounding areas became swampy wasteland. In this new and unforgiving world, survival of the fittest is the only true law.
Harvey Cline has perfected his bravado in order to survive in the Biloxi dome, but it takes more than charm to stay on top for any length of time. Hostility between the competing casinos is escalating and he risks losing everything. When he learns of a new drug that could rig the game in his favor, he heads to the swamps to find the source.
He thought it’d be easy saving his casino, but he wasn’t expecting the pretty bird in the sundress to give him a run for his money.
Typical swamp folk are secretive, angry, and hostile. Norra Lasalle is no different. With a little bit of luck and a whole lot of bluffing, she’s been able to keep her head above water while making Gator Bait, but people are starting to snoop around and she’s worried she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Harvey is pure trouble in a fancy suit and she wants no part of it, especially when the guy has a real knack for working down her guard. Her anonymity has kept her alive so far… but how long can the loose lips in a small town keep that kind of a secret?
