When another hurricane hits the island Jason Rumpholt and Sam Parker are forced to work together to keep the island safe from natural and man made disasters. Jason unexpectedly becomes both the mayor and chief of police for the island, and Sam arrives at Parker’s Bluff as the FEMA contact in charge of disaster assistance. The men soon realize they are dealing with a man-eating alligator and multiple criminal acts when people begin to disappear and their communication with the outside world is cut off.
Jason is also dealing with his ex-boyfriend who wants to reconcile, his growing attraction to Sam whose sexuality seems to be a mystery, and his involvement with a college jock who’s visiting the island for fall break.
As Jason tries to adjust to his new leadership role on the island and tries to keep the body count from rising he stumbles through events as best as he can. He’s just not sure he can deal with the distractions of deep-fried squirrels, a wasted pop star, spoiled college kids, evil gators, and the flood waters of the storm.
