Blood Island by H. Terrell Griffin

Trouble has a way of finding former Special Forces military man turned lawyer despite his attempts to retire to the quiet life on Longboat Key.  First he discovers a body while taking an early-morning tour of a bird sanctuary.  Then, his ex-wife calls to ask for help finding her missing step-daughter – last seen on Longboat Key.  What at first seems like a simple missing persons case takes an ominous turn when all the clues lead to Blood Island, and a mysterious – or is he just crazy? – Minister. 

This is part of a series, but quiet enjoyable as a stand-alone story.
