Island Tempest by Michael Mewshaw

Frank Pitchard has recently been leading a quiet, rather depressed existence-even though he lives on Eden, an exclusive resort island community off the coast of Florida. Forced into retirement after his company was taken over and reorganized, he spends his days sitting outside, reading The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook, thinking about his loving deceased wife, and dreaming up ways to get back at the corporate raiders. One bright spot is the lithe and beautiful Ariel, his wifes nurse, whos been hanging around since her death. Another is Randi, an Eden trophy wife currently between husbands. She gives Frank a set of binoculars and introduces him to bird-watching. However, Frank uses the binoculars to spy on Cal Barlow, his crippled next-door neighbor, and one day sees him sitting in his wheelchair, cradling a blue-steel pistol. The two men strike up a friendship soon afterward, when Cal happens upon Frank pushing a golf cart into the lake. An odd partnership develops. What Frank doesnt know is that Cal is an ex-mobster in witness protection-and that hes sleeping with Randi right under Franks nose. And Cal doesnt seem to realize that theres an assassin on his tail and that the Feds arent far behind. In this wicked and sharply drawn tale of the shady places between good and evil, Michael Mewshaw once again proves himself to be a storyteller of boundless talent.
