When a seventeen-year-old model claims she was raped in the VIP room of a South Beach nightclub by three high-profile men, itís up to Sam Hagen, head of Major Crimes for Dade County, to decide if they should be put on trial. Hagenís ambition to become the next state attorney outweighs his reluctance to be drawn back into the moral twilight of South Beach, where his own son died the year before. But when a key witness is found brutally murdered, Hagen is swept into a storm of suspicion that leads, in a shocking twist, back into his own shattered family.
