Book One - Johnnie Finds a Dead Body

Johnnie Crosswell, former Marine, now maintenance worker for the National Park Service on St. John, has daily challenges. Mainly struggling years later with the lingering effects of traumatic brain injury. Still, he enjoys the simple things in life. Reading, fishing, and giving treats to his wild iguana friend, Stumpy.

But his peaceful life takes a strange turn when he arrives pre-dawn to Hawksnest Beach and finds a dead body in the surf. Before the police arrive, Johnnie innocently takes a Bugs Bunny key chain off the deceased.

Days later, a sinister man dressed in black comes around, suspiciously asking about the dead man's belongings. Johnnie and his sidekick, Cud (a homeless recluse and former billionaire), hatch their own scheme to investigate.

With a police chief who hates him, being framed for two murders, and a hitman on his trail, can Johnnie learn from his mistakes, accept help from his friends, and do the right thing?

Or will a cheesy-puff crazed reptile ruin everything?
