Miami prosecutor Abe Beckham has been through tough personal times with the death of his beloved wife a Samantha. Now remarried to the supportive Angelina, he throws himself into his work. When a woman’s body is discovered dumped in the Everglades, Abe is called upon to monitor he investigation. The FBI is tracking a killer in South Florida they call “Cutter” because his brutal methods hark back to Florida’s dark past, when machete-wielding men cut sugarcane by hand in the blazing sun.
Then Angelina goes missing, and suspicion surrounds Abe. His closest friends, family, professional colleagues, and the media no longer trust his motives. Was his marriage not what he’d hoped for because he loved Samantha too much? Or was there another woman…..and a husband with a dark side who wanted his new wife gone?
