#8 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . .

Hotshot young Cleveland lawyer Joel Kerner is shotgunned to death on a lonely beach on the Caribbean island of San Carlos. The local police are inept, and the Cleveland cops can't operate outside their jurisdiction, so Kerner's sister Patrice comes to private eye Milan Jacovich (it's pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovich) to discover the truth about her brother's murder.

Milan flies to San Carlos to investigate—a pleasant three-day working vacation that doesn't keep him from getting stabbed in an alley and rousted by a high-level international cop.

Back in Cleveland, he asks his best friend, homicide lieutenant Marko Meglich, for some unofficial help. But he runs up against Kerner's angry father, a world-famous labor attorney, along with the bevy of beautiful women Joel Kerner left behind and a powerful union leader known around town as “The Irish.”

Milan marches forward to solve the case, though it will eventually cause him a tragic and insupportable personal loss.

Roberts certainly creates a sense of place. Cleveland rings true—and he's especially skillful in creating real moral and ethical choices for his characters. — The Plain Dealer
Jacovich [is] one of the most fully-realized characters in modern crime fiction . . . Roberts is a confident writer who knows his character well and who has made him complex enough to be interesting. — Mostly Murder
