A woman. A small boat. 18 dead bodies
It is 1991, and a bloody coup has plunged Haiti into chaos. Thousands take to the sea in a race for their lives. In Boston, Haitian-American lawyer Renée François gets a strange call.
In the dark, frigid waters of the Caribbean Sea, the US coast guard stumbled on a woman surrounded by 18 dead bodies–one of them a five year old child. An autopsy revealed no signs of drowning. It looks like the lone survivor is also a murderer.
But something is wrong here.
As Renée races to untangle the mystery before her client is deported to war-ravaged Haiti, she must battle her own demons to discover who killed all those people. And who is trying to kill her.
