This is the first in a series by A.E. Howe. Larry Macklin is not fond of his job as a deputy in a small Florida county. Doesn't even think he's that good at it. But when two murders and an arson case seem related by incidents that happened thirty years ago, that may involve his dad, the sheriff, Larry finds he's a better investigator than he suspected. This is a self - published book with some grammar mistakes that are a little irritating.
