BOOK REVIEW: ACTS OF NATURE
BY JONATHAN KING

We hope you enjoy this book review by Patricia Reid.



An unexpected visit by Hurricane Simone will have a lasting effect on the lives of a number of people in the way of the storm.

Max Freeman, former police officer in Philadelphia, and now a PI in Florida has invited Sherry Richards to spend a peaceful week with him at his remote cabin in the Everglades. Max and Sherry agree that this will be a few days with no contact with the outside world so no one really knows their location. The two are enjoying a great get-away until Simone makes her appearance.

A small time hood nicknamed Buck is happy to see Simone. He thinks that he can grab his two teenaged helpers, Marcus and Wayne, and head into the Everglades on a scavenger hunt as soon as the winds die down. Buck is sure that most of the people with remote cabins in the Everglades will be too busy cleaning up at their main residence to worry about what is happening in their vacation spot.

Edward Christopher Harmon is a PI with a military background. The work he is doing now is sometimes very dangerous and not within the legal boundaries. Harmon doesn’t fear much but he does fear hurricanes and knows from personal experience the havoc the storms can create. Harmon is not pleased about a call from his employer immediately following the storm to check on a site that they own in the Everglades but contacts his usual sidekick, Squires, and heads to the location.

Acts of Nature is an exciting story of the three entirely different groups with no previous history with each other and the impact that Simone and the Everglades have on their lives. There is danger involved for all concerned and it is touch and go as to who will survive.

Acts of Nature is another great addition to the Maxwell Freeman series and perhaps the best one yet.
