Steve Bennett never knew his father. Surprised to discover himself the heir to a billionaire's fortune, Steve struggles to accept his new heritage and wealth.

Paul Nelson also never knew Steve's father. And, why would he? But, he has known Steve forever and is more than happy to stand by his friend as he works through his sudden affluence.

A series of man-made islands has risen from the sea near the Dry Tortugas to form a playground for the rich and powerful. As one of the owners, it seems the perfect place for Steve to relax and adjust to his new situation. Everything seems perfect until he and Paul stumble upon a secret that could change everything.

They have no training. They can't trust anyone. But, they must escape from paradise and stop a plot that could change the world forever.

Tortugas Rising is full of action, adventure, beautiful women, boat chases, car chases, fine dining, eco-terrorists, rhinos, castles, a fortune, a father, dirty limericks, and two of the worst heroes ever asked to save the world.
