Overview

In the widely acclaimed Blackwater Sound, James W. Hall brought together his two protagonists—the dark, hardbitten Thorn and the feisty Miami cop Alexandra Rafferty. But before Alexandra came into Thorn's life, there had been Anne Joy, a beautiful woman escaping from her violent past in the languid life of the Florida Keys.
That past includes Anne's sadistic brother Vic, now a modern-day pirate whose murderous crew is terrorizing the Gulf Coast.Vic is obsessed with his sister and will do whatever it takes to drive Anne's lovers, past and present, away from her—even murder.
This obsession puts Vic on a collision course with Thorn and everything Thorn values, including the daughter of his closest friend.
From the lushness of the Florida Keys to a nightmare climax on the tropical coast of Central America, Off the Chart is vintage James W. Hall.
