When hot shot Cleveland real estate attorney Joel Kerner Jr. is killed on a Caribbean holiday, only his angry sister Patrice thinks it's more than a botched robbery. The island police have nothing and the Cleveland cops don't have the jurisdiction to track it down. So when burly P.I. Milan Jacovich is hired to swim through the mire, he's on his own.
Distracted by family feuds and nasty business dealings, Milan discovers that Kerner's father is a very famous--and very rich--union attorney who has made some powerful and angry enemies in Cleveland. Milan, a tough ex-football player, is not easy to push around, but when he's stabbed, beaten, and almost buried to death, no one is safe from suspicions--until insider news of an investment gone wrong sends him knocking on the right door. Unfortunately, there's a catch, and Milan is dangerously close to getting tangled in a barbed-wire net.
