Book Description
See all titles by Les Standiford.

In this absorbing new thriller by the author of Spill, the lives of a young Miami couple are shattered when they step into the path of some major league criminals who'll do anything to pull off the scam of a lifetime. Johnny Deal is a down-on-his-luck building contractor, struggling to revive his once-thriving family business in the new Miami. For Deal, raised on such quaint notions as a day's work for a day's pay and owning up to your mistakes, the transformation hasn't always been easy, not when he's trying to survive in a real estate glut. Still, he owns one piece of land free and clear, the fourplex he's building there is almost finished, and his wife, Janice, is finally pregnant after years of trying. The city too is engaged in a campaign of renewal, pursuing a baseball franchise that will bring America's pastime to the tropics. To Deal, a former college ballplayer, this campaign is a gentle suggestion that things may, at last, be going his way. Then Deal's luck runs completely dry. Janice is driving his car when she's forced off the precarious bridge that spans a rushing outlet from the Intracoastal to the Atlantic. The police find the car but not the body, and Deal is devastated because he knows it was supposed to be him in the car. when he learns that the killing is tied to one man's scheme to profit off Major League Baseball's arrival in Miami - and that Deal has been standing right in the way - the result is a single-minded quest for vengeance full of surprises, high-level chicanery, and a firestorm of violence that will change Deal's life and the city he loves forever.
