The Storm Rider offers crime, intrigue

The Storm Rider is a tale about how a deceitful man’s sins literally come back to haunt him. 
Early on the morning of August 28, 1935 in Savannah, Georgia, a tycoon named Patrick O’Keefe brings his daughter, Carmen, to the railroad station. He has entrusted her with $40,000 to secure tool and food contracts from the purchasing agents of the railroad company operating in the Florida Keys. The contracts will bring Patrick profits many times the original investment. 
There is no doubt that Carmen’s task is quite important. However, since she is quite a free spirit, it is anyone’s guess why Patrick chose her to carry it out. He has only himself to blame when Carmen botches her mission in the worst way imaginable. 
Shortly after arriving in Florida, Carmen enters a bar where she meets a hustler named Joe Bono. In spite of how aggressive and headstrong Carmen is, Joe eventually manages to disappear with Patrick’s money, leaving Carmen to die in a devastating hurricane. But Carmen’s spirit will search for him, find him, and exact her revenge. 
The Storm Rider appeals to readers seeking elements of crime, intrigue, the supernatural and the hope of romance. This is a tale no “Parrot Head” should miss. 
The story takes place over two great storms: The 1935 Labor Day Hurricane and Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
