    This is the second book in the "Orchid" series if you haven't delved into them yet give it a try. The main character Holly is ex-military and a police chief in a small Florida town. In general, I enjoy Stuart Woods books, always entertaining and move quickly. This one is no exception, my only criticism is with the narrator. She does a good job overall, even handles the men's voices quite well. But, ironically the voice she has assigned the main character Holly if off-putting and a bit distracting. As mentioned Holly is ex-military, a former MP, and a police chief. The narrator has inexplicably made her sound like some wimpy person with a wispy breathy almost whiny voice. Don't let that dissuade you from listening, could be just me, and you do get used to it.
