Twenty-something Robbie Ivy wants to keep her life as simple and commitment-free as possible. Who needs a high-pressure career, a relationship, or a family anyway? But Robbie's life gets inextricably complicated when her estranged father shows up with a shocking revelation about two teenage girls who disappeared in South Beach. One of the missing girls is Robbie's step sister Kate-a step sister Robbie never knew existed. Unwilling to reestablish family ties, Robbie is hesitant to get involved-until the body of her step sister's friend washes up in Indian Creek. Desperate to find her missing step sister, Robbie immerses herself in the unfamiliar world to which Kate may have fallen prey: the sexy, sizzling South Beach club scene. Swept up in a corrupt, destructive society, Robbie searches for a cold-blooded killer in the hottest South Beach hotspots. But in this see-and-be-seen world, everyone is dressed to kill, people are dying for a chance to get beyond the velvet rope and someone is watching. Robbie may have to choose between saving her step sister-and saving herself.
Potts's shiver-rich follow-up to In Their Blood takes a hard look at Miami's intense South Beach club scene. Bartender Robbie Ivy learns that she has a half-sister the hard way, after her estranged father shows up on her doorstep wanting help in locating his other daughter, Kaitlin "Kate" Brooks, and Kate's best friend, Joanne Sparks, who's later found drowned in Indian Creek. Robbie turns for advice to her former boyfriend, Jeremy Stroeb, who suggests she consult Det. Judy Lieber. The stakes rise after Robbie meets self-help author Gina Fieldstone, wife of politician Stanford Fieldstone and a local congressman kills himself following a visit to a popular bar the same night Robbie was there. Potts has created a sympathetic crime solver in Robbie, who wants to reclaim Jeremy and forge a new relationship with her family before it's too late.
