Maverick risk-taker and onetime star professor Fritz Tullis has been exiled from academia after a passionate affair with the wrong man´s wife. When he retreats to his family´s estate in southern Maryland, he refurbishes a run-down sharecropper´s shack on the edge of a swamp and spends his time musing and photographing the area´s abundant bird life. Most important, he vows to never again get involved with events he can´t control. But one morning while photographing birds, he sights a plane with his telephoto lens as it touches down on an airstrip across the bay. It´s an open secret that this area, with its multitude of hidden waterways, is becoming a hub for illegal arms and drug trafficking. Fritz witnesses the first in a string of murders involving high-ranking government officials and before he knows it, and against his better judgment, he is digging for the truth. Fritz is about to learn how dangerous ´´being involved´´ can be. For as his quiet life gets more complex, people - including some who are near and dear - start to die. And as his involvement in solving these crimes deepens, Fritz senses that he himself is being scrutinized through a telescopic lens, and that someone, somewhere, is plotting his death. 1.
