Current Assets follows author Darcy Farthing as she continues to write at her new home in Marco Island, Fla., while her boyfriend Mick Clayton conducts a GAO investigation of government property—asset forfeitures—stolen from under the noses of U.S. Marshals and a sheriff’s office.
When their close friend, Tom Smythe, is arrested for attempted murder of a deputy sheriff, Mick believes the incident is related to the property thefts and corruption. As he attempts to identify those responsible, the story takes a spiraling turn when more deputies are attacked and Darcy and Mick are drawn into a bewildering government investigation and an alarming web of murder and conspiracy with a surprising link to Middle East terrorists—as well as a smuggling operation on a luxury yacht.
To complicate matters, Darcy’s daughter, Rachael, pays an unexpected visit from Kenya bringing with her a different type of serious trouble, which Darcy and Mick feel ill equipped to handle. As they inch closer to identifying a vicious murderer, the violence hits close to home when desperate criminals target Darcy and Rachael.
Fast paced, action packed and filled with mystery and suspense, Current Assets offers breath-taking surprises, while revealing more of the characters’ complex relationships and vulnerabilities, right up to the unforeseen and startling conclusion.
