At forty-five he has two longtime companions, a dog and a Harley.

A visit from an old friend, Annie, an erstwhile biker chick and now respected private eye, proves otherwise. She shows Chase a photograph of the scene where Sophie died and at once Chase realizes that something is wrong. A violent storm may have killed his sister but the ground where she died is dry and undisturbed. Sophie’s body had been dumped there.Arriving home, Chase finds a message from a coworker of Sophie’s and arranges a meet in the Everglades for the following day. When Chase arrives he is met by Joe Keel, a Seminole, who takes Chase by airboat to a small island hidden in the mangroves. Joe tells Chase how, on a camping trip to the Keys, Sophie had stumbled on something unbelievable. These two men have one obsession, to find the truth. They will do so at any cost. The chase is on.
