The latest release from award-winning novelist H. Terrell Griffin, Collateral Damage is a sizzling thriller about deceit, revenge—and murder.
The quiet beauty of Longboat Key is shattered when a young groom is shot to death on the beach the day after his wedding. The groom’s father is an old army buddy of Matt Royal’s, and Matt tries to soften his friend’s anguish by finding out who murdered his son.
Matt's search takes on added complexity when there appears to be a link between this murder and three seemingly-unrelated homicides that occurred on board a dinner cruise on Sarasota Bay the same day.
Fortunately for Matt, his old buddies, Logan Hamilton and Jock Algren, show up to cover his back and to help investigate. But this case only rekindles haunting events of Matt's past—and incites a web of doubt, deception, and even suspicion, among the closest of friends.
When Longboat Key detective, Jennifer Diane (J.D.) Duncan joins the investigation, Matt’s focus is tested, as he drifts toward more than just a professional relationship. But this distraction could cost lives when they encounter a shady and very dangerous cabal.
According to David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Expediter, “Terry Griffin's latest entry in the Matt Royal set-in-Florida mysteries is a perfect blend of old south, beach bum, funky character driven stories—the kind that made John D. MacDonald famous—only Griffin's tale tops the best with its unexpected blend of international intrigue. My hat is definitely off!”
