the word for her. Samantha Vine was unbelievably beautiful. It was
unbelievable that she'd married me. Even more unbelievable that she was
gone. . . .
Samantha died too soon. Abe
Beckham's new wife has helped him through the loss, but some say it was a
step back for Abe to marry Angelina, a love from his past. Abe doesn't
want to hear it, and he's even managed to remain a star prosecutor at
the Miami State Attorney's Office through his ups and downs.
Then everything goes wrong. A
woman's body is discovered dumped in the Everglades, and Abe is called
upon to monitor the investigation. The FBI is tracking a killer in South
Florida they call "Cutter" because his brutal methods hark back to
Florida's dark past, when machete-wielding men cut sugarcane by hand in
the blazing sun.
When Angelina goes missing, the
respected attorney finds himself under fire. Suspicion surrounds him.
His closest friends, family, professional colleagues, and the media no
longer trust his motives. Was Angelina right? Was their marriage not
what they'd hoped for because he loved Samantha too much? Or was there
another woman . . . and a husband with a dark side who simply wanted his
new wife gone?
