Hoke Moseley is getting into the "cold cases"- no clues, no leads-and that's fine with him. He's wanted to close the book on that Miami M.D. murder for three years. But Commander Henderson's got something a little hotter in mind. Only he's keeping a lid on it, telling Hoke just to let his beard grow and sit tight. So with a face as bristly as his mood, Moseley figures something big is going down. Stripped of his wallet, gun,even his false choppers, he's being sent south to the migrant farms where rumors of slavery and sudden death are growing fast as tomatoes. And now things are really going to heat up... because a guy without protection in that no man's land is as good as a goner.From the Inside Flap:
Look the Part. Die the Part.
A three-year-old murder case was coming together nicely. A killer Hoke had once put in prison has moved into the house across the street. And Hoke Moseley's daughter has blue hair. But now Hoke has to walk away from his life and pretend to be a bum. Turns out it isn't hard.
Hoke hands over his teeth, wallet, and gun on the hot Tamiani Trail -- the highway that connects Miami and Naples by way of the alligator-infested Everglades. Hoke's boss, Major Willie Brownley, has arranged this little undercover adventure. And what an adventure it will be.
In a dusty corner of South Florida, Hoke enters a world of Haitian migrant workers, soup kitchens, and forgotten whores. And in the searing heat he'll meet the man he's been sent to kill -- the most vicious beast in the land...
