Under an intense, blue Jamaica sky, music journalist Mick Sever lands a front row seat to the Next Big Thing - a reggae/rap band known as Derek and The Laments. Derek Lyman, the band's charismatic Rastafarian singer has an unmistakable hold on the audience, and his provocative lyrics work the crowd into a frenzy. But lurking beneath the new stars' promise is a deadly secret-two female fans have been savagely killed after attending Laments' concerts. And everyone begins to wonder if the band is connected to the murders? The journalist in Sever follows the group to Miami as he hunts for the truth on a trail that will lead him down Florida's coastal highway to Key West and back again. And when another young concertgoer loses her life, Sever finds himself the target of someone who is desperate to keep the Laments' past buried-and...desperate enough to kill again and again.
