New York Times bestselling author Carl Hiaasen's gripping debut. A witness to a gangland murder must outwit and outrun the vicious hit men on his trail - before it's too late. Chris Meadows's charmed life as an up-and-coming architect has kept him far removed from Miami's bloody drug trade. But his comfortable existence comes crashing down around him when Chris witnesses the hit-and-run death of an ex-girlfriend by a car full of drug smuggling gangsters. Now caught up in southern Florida's brutal underground cocaine war, Chris is in a fight for his life - to evade not only the hit men seeking to silence him, but also the crooked Miami cops who would rather exploit than protect him.
