Format: Paperback
This book really holds your attention. It is like a movie unfolding in front of your eyes with each page enticing you to flip onwards to the next. It gives an amazing first person account of the culture of drug trafficking in South Florida. Seemingly independent events and the lives of unrelated people interweave to illustrate just how deep the drug smuggling business penetrated our society in the 1980s and the U.S. government's reaction to counteract these illicit activities. It is told through the eyes of the characters who lived it, the smugglers, the Customs agents trying to thwart it, and the prosecutor trying to both punish those involved and make a name for himself in the process. It is a must read and I hope to see a movie version sometime soon!

I worked there and did that in Marathon, Florida in the late 1980s. Much of the details are based on actual events and the storyline is true for the era. It was an okay book that kept my interest. If your interested in reading about the gofast smuggling of the 80s in South Florida you will probably enjoy the book. As with all works of fiction there are some parts that are not believable.

Very well written book; almost impossible to put down. Sucks you in to the story line with a lot of details to imagine about. Very true to real life events and those with the knowledge of real events will be able to spot the subtle tweaks that turn this into a novel of fiction. My only gripe were numerous typos and editing flaws in this first edition book. But that does not detract from the author or the story. Definitely worth the purchase.

What a great story based on fact! This is a story based on a way of life in the Florida Keys and S. Florida back in the 80's. Anyone who lived it will enjoy every chapter and anyone who ever wondered what it was like will not be able to put this book down! I can't wait for someone to make this into a movie!

I first saw parts of the story on NGC but it was mostly about boats. The author T. Rafael Cimino had a sound bite on the show and a credit where his book was mentioned. I enjoyed the book so much better that the TV program.

Mid Ocean, by Todd Rafael Cimino, HAS NAILED IT !!! From "Prologue" to "Epilogue", all 422 pages of this gripping novel finally gets out the truth that others have only talked/dreamed about doing for over 30+ years. Growing up as a "G.I. Brat" in Homestead, Miami, and the Keys, I can, from my own personal expieriances, attest to the reality depicted in this novel, as well as anyone from the South Florida area. I am a 55 year old retired Army UH-60 Black Hawk Aviator who worked Special Ops. No matter which "Side of the Tracks" you were on, or not, you'll love Cimino's finely tuned accuracy on ALL details. From the characters and types of powered vessels, to the locations, events, situations, highs, lows, and outcomes, Cimino really does NAIL this era to a tee. I'm not an expert on what should or should not become a movie, but something tells me this novel has "Movie" stamped all over it and is destined to become one. Respectfully Submitted, CW2 Charles E. Compton Sr. (RET) USAR Army Aviator. Check T.Rafael Cimino out at; [...]

Loved this book-it grabbed my attention from the beginning and I could not put it down. It is realistic in telling the story of how life can/is in the Florida Keys for some.
