Review: Skeet Waters dreams of going fly fishing for tarpon. One day while he is out in his skiff he sees a manatee that has been shot. Manatees are protected by law so he reports this to the local sheriff. When he and the sheriff return to the site, the body of the manatee is gone. As Skeet tries to unravel the mystery he deals with his parents dissolving marriage and goes tarpon fishing with Dirty Dan, his hero. Skeet discovers life is not always the way it appears. Colorful characters and Skeet's good common sense make this a great read.
