Florida mystery writer Randy Wayne White wrote this book as Randy Striker in 1981. It was one of a thriller series, also one of his first books, written during what he called a training period. He said that he wrote this book in nine days.
Great book - beginning of a new action hero. Very similar to Lee Child and the Jack Reacher novels.
Early novel of Randy Wayne White's. Not the Doc Ford series, but just as good!
KEY WEST CONNECTION by Randy Wayne White: Ex-Navy SEAL Dusky MacMorgan will need all his military skills when a psychotic pack of drug runners turns the the Gulf stream waters red with the blood of his beloved family.

But even that fortress in vulnerable to a one-man hit-squad with MacMorgans expertise and arsenal. Originally published in 1981 under the pen name of Randy Striker. Hope they have some more stashed away.
I got this book based of the name and was not sure what to expect. I don't like things that are too suspensful and this book had me on my seat but not too much. I enjoyed the book and the main character was captivating. A few twist in turns. I liked it because it was light action and not too intense.

I thought the first book of Dusky MacMorgan was intriguing; There were surprises along the way that kept me going until the end. I can't wait to read book 2!
Keeps you hanging on until the end
