(From the publisher):
LAND OF THE ETERNAL SUCKER...that was Coral City, Slade County, Florida. By day the tourist robbery was genteel...practiced by scrubbed and bowing clerks who booked a room with a view at prices out of sight, and by merchants who waited all year for the season of the sucker.
But it was at night that the real money changed hands...at tourist cabins (no questions asked, at cock fights, at plush clubs where the only winner was the house, and nobody seemed to care.
Nobody, except a man named Pop Seegar who owned everything that made money and ruined lives in Slade County. Now somebody named Kendall was making things unpleasant for Pop, and Pop hated unpleasantness.
Which was why he called in a warm and practiced young woman to set up the details. After all, Pop was also a generous man, and he believed that even an enemy was entitled to a pleasant interlude before the end.
