Waters is one angry kid. His parents have separated but they said
it was just so they could work things out. But now he's heard his
mother on the phone telling his dad that she doesn't want him back.
So Skeet jumps in his boat and heads out. What he finds throws him
for a loop. It's a manatee. And it's dead. This is a
manatee refuge so it isn't that common to find dead manatees. And
this one has been shot in the head. Who would do such a thing?
He brings the sheriff back to the spot, the manatee is gone. Where
could it go? This is just the beginning of the mystery that Skeet
finds himself investigating.
