THE SETTING

Southwest Florida. The landscapers are out daily, cutting back the surging vegetation as a steady breeze comes off the Gulf. The Everglades stretch across the state to Miami, thousands of acres rolling with alligators. Fort Myers is a murderous city; Tampa Bay pulses with nightlife; Naples is one of the wealthiest places in the U.S. But despite the concentration of millionaires, the region has poverty, homelessness, drugs, and organized crime.
