Charismatic ex-pat Bobby Little built his own funky version of paradise on the remote Bahamian island of Rum Cay, a place where ambitious sport fishermen docked their yachts for fine French cuisine and crowded the bar to boast of big blue marlin catches while Bobby refilled their cognac on the house. Larger than life, Bobby was always the main attraction: a visionary entrepreneur, master chef, skateboard champ, surfer, and even a former undercover DEA agent.
|Author Waitzkin demonstrating his expertise.|
But after tragedy shatters the tranquility of Bobby’s marina, tourists stop visiting and simmering jealousies flare among island residents. And when Dennis, a cruel man with mob connections, challenges Bobby for control of the docks, all hell breaks loose. As the cobalt blue Bahamian waters run red with blood, the man who made Rum Cay his home will be lucky if he gets off the island alive…
Inspired by a true story and beautifully illustrated by John Mitchell, Deep Water Blues uses flowing and elegant prose to tell the story of a Bahamian island that becomes a battleground for a savage private war.
