Welcome back to Camino Island, where anything can happen even a murder in the midst of a hurricane, which might prove to be the perfect crime . . .

Florida s governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm.
The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives.
