"Last seen considering marriage to her FBI boyfriend, Blaine Stewart tosses all thoughts of marital bliss out the window when a late-night call comes ringing with bad news. It's her wayward brother, Dick, pleading for Blaine's assistance in a little mess he's gotten himself into. He's been accused of murder." "And not just anyone's murder, but Corrye Edwards, Key West's unofficial poet laureate and widow of a famous Cuban expatriate artist. It's not an easy case, Blaine finds upon arrival, as Dick has no alibi and Corrye's last poem, "Prelude to Death," squarely points to him as a man not to be trusted." "Caught between family loyalty and the search for justice, Blaine realizes that this land of tropical breezes and languid days has a harsh undercurrent. With her every move monitored by sleazy lawyers, local detectives, and a shadowy government agent, Blaine risks her faith, her future - and her life - to clear Dick's name."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
