Britt Montero is a crime reporter for a major Miami newspaper, and an oddity in a man's domain: a blond, green-eyed Cuban-American woman tough enough to investigate even the most terrifying of homicides, but with a tender spot for the city's underdogs. The latest report to come in seems fairly cut and dried: several cops on the midnight shift chase a black motorist, and the fleeing man, a former football hero, winds up dead. However, as Britt begins her story on the accident, she discovers a number of disturbing facts about that night. Despite warnings to stay away, she starts to investigate what really happened--taking the reader from the high-intensity atmosphere of the newsroom to riding on the midnight beat with the cops, to the outraged black community that threatens to erupt into violence. Along the way she consorts with her own network of contacts, both solid citizens and nefarious nightbirds--and takes on a forbidden lover, a man she may not be able to trust. As the city explodes in a riot, Britt is caught up in events that bring the novel to a heart-shuddering climax

Britt is back, and the tough, charismatic Cuban-American reporter is investigating a series of bizarre deaths involving terminal sex, electrocution, and freshly poured concrete. With a dying detective as her friend and source, Britt probes the unsolved sex murder of a small girl, which may implicate the rich and powerful front-runner in the governor's race. She also follows the trail of a terrifying serial rapist who ambushes career women in the restrooms of the gleaming downtown towers that spike the Miami skyline. The quest takes her from the sterile and antiseptic police crime lab and its forensic experts into the dark heart of Santeria, a blood-fueled religion linked to spells, symbols, sacrifice, and the occult. Enraged at Britt's stories, the rapist escalates his violence and focuses his obsession on her. Stalked by the shadowy rapist, on the trail of a serial killer, Britt comes ever closer to learning the shocking truth as tensions mount and the stories intersect with edge-of-the-seat suspense and an astonishing conclusion. Britt is earthy, edgy, valiant, and self-deprecating, and her best friend Lottie, a flame-haired, cowboy-booted Texan news photographer, is every reporter's dream shooter. News junkies, they are hooked on adrenaline in the two cities they love. Both are named Miami. One is the Miami that erupts in explosive violence, the other is the Miami of whispering palms, purple twilights, and pink-painted dawns

A century ago, when Indians and alligators roamed frontier Miami, the legendary John Ashley was accused of murder and sentenced to hang. He went on the run with his sweetheart, Laura. Their crime spree lasted years longer and became far more deadly than the exploits of Bonnie and Clyde a decade later. This is their true story of prison breaks, bootlegging, bank robberies, and piracy on the high seas. Their saga of love, passion, and violence is juxtaposed with the story of their fictional descendants who share the same love and dangers a hundred years later. In today's Miami, Homicide Sergeant John Ashley investigates a millionaire's spectacular murder and instantly recognizes a stunning model linked to the case as the girl who has haunted his dreams since childhood. The homicide case goes bad, Ashley is falsely accused of murder, and the new lovers go on the run as history repeats itself. The question is, how powerful is the past?--From publisher description
