Private eye Thomas Haftmann jumps at the opportunity to escape the frigid Northern Ohio weather. Beautiful, troubled Raina Toivela has run away from home again. All he has to do is fly down to Miami, show her photo around, ask a few questions, and take a stroll along the beach before coming back to his tiny office in a second-class resort town and the routine of skip-trace jobs. But it won’t be sunny beaches Haftmann will recall once he recovers from the bullet wound to his head. He’ll remember a beating from a professional boxer and the icy fear in his guts during that drive to the mangrove swamps with two gun thugs who planned to make him alligator bait for the amusement of their boss, a rich Cuban-American developer. Battered and bruised, Haftmann will go back to search for the girl once more, and this time he will find himself wading through a different kind of muck—one composed of lowlife schemers and rich degenerates with their drugs and sex parties, knowing two killers will be looking for him to finish the job, and aware at every step of his investigation that the man who ordered his murder and orchestrated Raina’s disappearance is watching his every move with blood colder than any reptile.
