From the New York Times -- bestselling author of Dirt, Choke, and Imperfect Strangers comes another thriller (more than 100,000 hardcover copies sold) of love, greed, and murder set against the shimmering waters off Antigua.

Stone Barrington is back, and it will take all of the savvy New York investigator/lawyer's wits to stay afloat in this exciting, fast-paced tale of Caribbean island intrigue. This time, Barrington is the only hope of Allison Manning, a beautiful young woman on trial for murder after her wealthy husband mysteriously disappear.

Together, the Mannings had set sail across the Atlantic, bound for the island of Antigua. But when Allison dropped anchor in St. Mark's harbor, she was alone, her husband presumed murdered. Facing conviction, she enlists the help of Barrington, who goes head-to-head with the island's minister of justice, Sir Winston Sutherland, a man who practices his own forms of justice. Inextricably caught in a swirling storm of local island mayhem, murder, and, of course, romance, Barrington discovers that, under the searing Caribbean sun, even the most convincing people aren't who they seem.

Stone Barrington only wants a winter getaway from the chill of New York in the beautiful, tropical Caribbean paradise of St. Mark's. But what the lawyer and ex-cop gets instead is the chance to defend Allison Manning. The beautiful young woman stands accused of killing her rich husband on board their luxurious yacht and then burying him at sea.

Stone isn't exactly conversant with the island country's law, but this much is clear to him: Allison is being railroaded by the perverse sense of justice of a prosecutor who will do anything to stay in office. Donning the robe and wig of a British barrister, Stone does everything he can to save Allison--from publicizing the case all over the American press to conducting the kind of smart, tough investigation that money can't buy. Just when he has the jury in the palm of his hands, a shocking reversal of fortune changes everything. And what was once a sure thing begins to look a lot like a death sentence.
