Summary
A Miami hit-and-run witness winds up as bait for drug smugglers—in an "explosive" novel cowritten by the New York Times–bestselling author of Bad Monkey (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution). Chris Meadows's charmed life as an up-and-coming architect in Coconut Grove has kept him far removed from Miami's bloody drug trade. But his comfortable existence comes crashing down around him when Chris witnesses the hit-and-run death of an ex-girlfriend by a car full of drug smuggling gangsters. Now caught up in southern Florida's brutal underground cocaine war, Meadows is in a fight for his life—to evade not only the hit men seeking to silence him, but also the crooked Miami cops who would rather exploit than protect him. This is the very first suspense thriller written by the New York Times–bestselling author of Razor Girl and Sick Puppy and Bill Montalbano, a writing team praised for its "fine flair for characters and settings" (Library Journal). Those who enjoy Hiaasen's other Florida thrillers, the Doc Ford novels by Randy Wayne White, or Netflix's Narcos will want to discover these early crime fiction gems
Summary

As a witness to the crime, Chris knows the car's passengers--thugs linked to Miami's deadliest drug lords--are sure to come after him next. But what can he do if the police refuse to give him protection?
