In a hot Florida summer, Sergeant Hoke Moseley is losing his mind: his ex-wife just remarried, his teenage daughters want to quit school, his beat partner is eight months pregnant - and living in his house - and his desk is disappearing under a ton of cold cases. So a little holiday to Singer Island seems like the perfect break.
But things don't always work out. A handsome, cowboy-hatted psychopath is planning another armed robbery - one that will draw in a grumpy dog-poisoning retiree and leave half-a-dozen bystanders dead. And in this hilarious, wicked tale of crime and mid-life crisis, it seems that only Hoke can stop him.
