Blood in the Water
The publisher’s life becomes even more chaotic when a flood shuts down Pensacola, causing hundreds of millions of dollars of damage, and leaving Holmes’s entire staff stranded in his apartment. Before the town can cope with the destruction, the county jail explodes.
Somehow Holmes must get his act together—stop his binge drinking, win back the support of his staff and friends, stave off a hostile takeover of his newspaper and figure out what and who caused the deadly blast. But his investigation is unearthing dangerous connections to the Dixie Mafia, the Ku Klux Klan and decades of backroom deals.
Before he is done, plenty of blood will be in the water. Holmes hopes none of it is his.
