Mark Lyons, a nurse, patient advocate, and avid outdoorsman currently living in Florida, has completed his book “Only in Florida: Mosquito Lagoon”: a fast-paced and suspenseful work of fiction featuring a riveting medical mystery, a violent crime, and the nurse at the center of it all.

Mark writes, “If Mike Lyman needed something to add adventure to his life after a period of stale and humdrum, he found it in Mosquito Lagoon. The remote waterway with its many islands is thirty miles from his home, but it becomes the place where all his new questions can be answered. In his regular life, he has to fight each day for the motivation he needs just to go on and craves anything that will break up the grind. In a very short time, it becomes a big dose of 'Be careful what you wish for.' A case of rabies in an orthopedic rehab is shocking to Mike, but when a beautiful lady detective begins to investigate the patient’s sudden death, the adventure is on.

"This is clearly new territory for a nurse, despite the fact that nurses investigate health questions every day to present to doctors. The authorities seem to get nowhere without his help, and his only ally, the lady detective, takes the blame for many of his unwanted incursions. He foils murder and kidnap attempts against him along the way and saves other lives in the process. Even though he often wishes it was over, the events on Mosquito Lagoon provide more excitement than he has ever had, and he can’t seem to let go. That gorgeous cop doesn’t make it any easier to return to a nurse job either. He can barely stay ahead of the whirlwind he has created, and as the elements increase in danger, he can only rely on his strength of character and a secret weapon to carry him through. If you have a man’s job to do, and you live near Mosquito Lagoon in Florida, you may want to send a nurse to do it.”
