Tom Coffey's The Serpent Club was hailed as ""hypnotic"" (Publishers Weekly). Now, he returns with this sultry tale of sudden violence, overpowering lust, and brutal retribution -- all under the shadows of a Miami Twilight. Slick public-relations executive Garrett Doherty is jeopardizing his marriage, his career, and his life -- all for an enigmatic beauty known as Magdalena. The affair has also connected Doherty to Cuban expatriate and land developer Ernesto Rodriguez, a man whose associations with U.S. intelligence agencies and the underworld have placed him in the center of the anti-Castro movement and a far-reaching cocaine empire. Rodriguez wants Doherty to help him promote Tierra Grande, a gated playground for millionaires and his final shot at legitimacy. But as Doherty's obsession with Magdalena consumes him, he is pulled into a maelstrom of violent dealings and betrayals that just may be the handiwork of his alluring temptress. Will Doherty follow his fixation to a new life...or a cold grave?
