From New York Times'??bestselling author and former Miami prosecutor Barbara Parker comes a spellbinding legal thriller about a sexual attack at a South Beach nightclub that has shocking repercussions for the victim, the three suspects, and an idealistic prosecutor Sam Hagen'??s eighteen years as a prosecutor haven'??t inured him to violence, even in Miami, where murder has become almost routine. Now a seventeen-year-old model named Ali D. claims she was gang-raped in the VIP room of a South Beach nightclub. Trouble is, two of the men she'??s accusing are Miami movers and shakers: Marquis Lamont, pro-footballer turned actor, and connected Italian businessman Klaus Ruffini, who owns a high-profile property in South Beach. Under political pressure from the state'??s attorney, Hagen is expected to dismiss the case for lack of evidence. At home, his marriage is crumbling and he finds his moral certitude tested when he rekindles an affair with model-turned-photographer Caitlin Dorn. Now Hagen'??s about to make more enemies: He decides to pursue the rape investigation, which soon erupts in murder. Caught up in a maelstrom of violence and suspicion, this seasoned prosecutor must race to solve an out-of-control case.
