Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A shadowy operator decides to put a lock on South Florida's cocaine trade, and Miami is suddenly transformed into a war zone as bloodily anarchic as Beirut. Chris Meadows has the bad luck to see an old girlfriend die in the crossfire. He has the worse luck, to see the face of her murderers. Because in a town as violent as Miami, a witness doesn't stand a chance — especially when the cops who ought to be protecting him are more interested in dangling him as live bait.

Because in a town as violent as Miami, a witness doesn't stand a chance — especially when the cops who ought to be protecting him are more interested in dangling him as live bait.
