Before Florida transplant Casey Shaw can relax and enjoy life living aboard a new yacht on the Chesapeake with his girlfriend, he’ll have to deal with a long list of challenges.

Then there’s the new development deal next door which has suddenly dropped into his lap.
Desert Kill Switch
On an empty desert road, stressed-out ex-cop Lyle Deming finds a bullet-riddled body next to a vintage mint-condition 1970s Pontiac Firebird. When he returns to the scene with sheriff’s deputies: no car, no body. Does the answer lie in Nostalgia City, the retro theme park where Lyle drives a cab? Nostalgia City VP Kate Sorensen, a former college basketball star, is in Reno, Nevada, on park business when she gets mixed up with a sleazy Las Vegas auto dealer who puts hidden “kill switches” and GPS trackers into the cars he sells to low-income buyers. Miss a payment—sometimes by as little as a few days—and your car is dead. Maybe you are, too.
