Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Bob Green, down on his luck Canadian farmer, gambles on cheap property in the Bahamas to recoup his losses. The new farming project in the Bahamas was supposed to be the opportunity of the lifetime for him and his family. No one advertised the fact that death lurked in the background as they signed the deal. Although he spots something not quite right, it gets swept along in the rush: his beloved Bahamas (where he and wife July spent a blissful honeymoon), the opportunity to cash in quick, what more could he ask for? Bob Ferguson masterfully crafts a novel of gritty suspense, with compelling characters who make the plot more vivid and believable – Buzzard Bay starts with a hunted man becoming the hunter on a violent night in the Canadian winter. Ferguson quickly establishes Bob Green as an able though not career survivalist, an All-American everyman hero who proves equal to the delirious machinations of intrigue and violence.
A plane crash confirmed Green’s suspicions as to why the farm has been operating at a loss. The project was not what it seems on the outside. The discovery of drugs on the airplane had put all their lives in jeopardy – his family as well as the partners who were along for the economic opportunity. Instead of leaving well enough alone, Green decided to fight back. He becomes involved in a hellish world of espionage, violence, betrayal and drugs. He soon finds out how fine and fragile is the line that divides good and evil.
That assassination attempt during a vicious Canadian snowstorm goes terribly wrong. Bob survives and so does Henekie. The first is motivated by the love for his wife and family, the other by the death of his best friend and mentor, but in the end, is mostly motivated by greed. Unwittingly, these two bitter enemies become embroiled in a bitter power struggle between a Columbian drug lord and the CIA in the Bahamas. Ferguson effectively builds suspense by flashbacks of Bob Green’s history and the complex threads that make the fabric of this novel in between the slow, operatic scenes to the cruel dance of fate on the snows of a valley Green calls home.
