Florida Heat Wave by Florida Author Michael Lister
February 15, 2010
The suffocating heat makes you do things—it seeps in through your pores and sucks out your life. Like the bloody smear of a swatted mosquito on sweat-soaked skin, violence erupts suddenly, but the damage lingers.
From the pine tree–lined rural highways of north Florida, the tourist traps of central Florida, and the tropical, international environs of South Beach, come stories of sun-faded noir, orange pulp served up freshly squeezed.
