Chase and Riley assemble a team of misfits and eccentrics as they take on the powerful Russian mob in the lawless tidal lands of the Low Country to get the boy back.

But her suturing skills and her knowledge of the island bring assets the team needs. Especially after Chaseas first visit with the Russian requires a bit of the former. Meet Gator: an ex-Ranger, iron-pumping, fire-breathing hulk of a redneck, with a soft spot in his heart for Erin, and steroids burning in his muscles to hurt people. As long as Riley and Chase point him in the right direction, the rest of the populace should be all right.

He nurses his own pain and secrets, but heeds Chaseas call to renew their childhood friendship. Especially when he learns the target is the Russians.
