Seasoned investigator Claire Caswell and legendary Miami Dade state attorney, Gaston ''Guy'' Lombard, once again merge their acclaimed talents to tackle the most elusive of criminals. This time, when a gun-wielding man barges into the office of Caswell & Lombard, Private Investigation, the case takes the investigators from the steamy city of Miami Beach to Crete--the Greek island of romance and mystique. Arriving in Crete, the sleuths begin to track down the infamously dangerous target of their search. Unbeknownst to Claire and Guy, a group of merciless vigilantes also hunts for the same man . . . but for a very different purpose. Road to Omalos weaves together a vibrantly-depicted throng of characters--many who struggle with moral issues as they see-saw between virtue and obligation--and colorful cultural history, and interlaces a powerful tale of justice, vengeance, and intrigue, as the search for a conscienceless criminal pegs the investigators and the vigilantes against each other in a perilous race to final justice. Details are meticulously drawn to entice, capture the reader, and bring this literary vision to life. A spellbinding story. Named "Winner" in the 2011 Benjamin Franklin Awards-Mystery/Suspense category. Named "Winner" in the 2011 International Book Awards-Fiction Thriller category.
