Tropical Windfall by Richard Wickliffe

What Would You Do?

A young couple finds a bag containing a fortune off the coast of Key West. In a panic, they report it to authorities –but only half.

To reward their honesty, they’re told they can keep the money if no one claims it in 90 days. Confident that dealers will never claim the money, they make plans for their new fortune.

A dream come true for newlyweds in paradise. But the infuriated dealers send assassins to reclaim their money. The newlyweds can’t run to the police because they selfishly concealed half. The suspense builds as horrific villains create a nightmare for the young couple in their supposed paradise.

TROPICAL WINDFALL is available from Amazon.

 *****

Every crime cliché is turned upside down: The crime boss is the opposite of a hulking drug lord. Our intelligent hero is the wife, not her insecure husband. The cops aren’t fearless and the good guys have uncertain ethics.

“The refreshingly-different novel has villains reminiscent of Thomas Harris’s “Hannibal Lechter,” balanced with subtle satire in the style of Carl Hiaasen.”
