When a young model goes missing, high-profile defense attorney C.J. Dunn delves into the seedy and sexy world of Miami Beach to find a killer. The characters come alive in this intensely plotted mystery where everyone carries a secret and appearances can be deceiving. Great characters, good pacing and lively action keep readers guessing until the very end.

C.J. defends a U.S. congressman's chauffeur, Rick Slater, the last person to see Alana Martin, a young model, alive at a party. When the case switches from missing person to homicide, C.J. needs to find the woman Slater drove home that night to clear him of Alana's death. Soon C.J. learns she may be chasing a woman she already knows -- a teenage runaway who may be in serious danger herself. Meanwhile, C.J.'s socialite boyfriend, Billy Medina, afraid of damaging his own reputation, is reluctant to help her gather information. Who can C.J. trust? (VANGUARD, Jun., 368 pp., $25.95)
