Not everything shines brightly on Florida’s luxury coast.
In her fourth outing (after Peak Season, Tourist in Paradise and Curb Appeal), former detective CW (Candace) McCoy is still reeling from the murder of her fellow real estate agents. She relishes a fresh start—a new agency, a stellar property and a second chance at love. But when she’s attacked near Spanish Point’s hottest condo project, she knows there’s more at play than road rage.
The massive redevelopment will generate untold wealth. It also will expose thousands to the risk of storm surge. Despite nonstop protests and allegations of fraud, the city greenlights the project.
As tragedy strikes, CW launches her own probe, without her friend and mentor Walter Bishop, who’s feared lost at sea. Who approved the project? Who tampered with evidence? And who’s eliminating its opponents? Despite warnings from the authorities, she presses the city elite for answers, jeopardizing her job, alienating her friends and lovers and triggering a political backlash that will reach the statehouse.
CW knows who’s guilty. She just has to prove it—before someone sends her on a permanent vacation.
