Abstract:

Miami-based private eye Willie Cuesta is feeling good. He has a new client, and when she insists on meeting at the Ritz Carlton, Willie knows this case could be good for his bottom line. Carmen Vickers de Estrada¿s is Colombian by birth, and like many of her countrymen, she has suffered at the hands of kidnappers. Her husband was killed while resisting abduction, and now, though they¿re living in Key Biscayne, she fears that someone may try to snatch her son. She wants Willie, a former Miami Police Department detective, to provide protection for José. And when four men toting automatic weapons take his gorgeous girlfriend in broad daylight, Willie is left to explain how she was kidnapped on his watch. As the Estrada clan waits anxiously for the ransom demand, Willie discovers that things don¿t add up about the family he has been hired to protect. Soon Willie finds himself on the receiving end of gun fire, and he can¿t help but wonder if he¿ll soon reach hallowed ground¿the place where he¿ll meet his end.
