Miami detective Tate Drawdy’s girlfriend won’t marry him. His boss can’t stand him. And the hottest Cuban in the city has just been murdered on his watch.
Drawdy’s about to discover the victim was the wrong man. A case of mistaken identity? He’s going to find out, but it means surviving a terrifying encounter with an escaped con. And, ain’t this a thrill? He’s beginning to suspect the guy he’s trying to protect is running some sort of expat conspiracy.
Drawdy’s a rich kid who dropped out of med school to become a cop. He’s impetuous. He’s a blues fanatic — bring your earplugs. And his obsession with this case is about to get him killed.
