The South Beach Sadist is dead . . . Jake had seen to that.
But in two weeks, Miami has two new victims, each butchered and their bodies marked with the sign of the Sadist . . . a sign never revealed to the public.
As cryptic clues, and the promise of a third victim, begin to arrive in his office, Jake Sullivan, Chief Prosecutor for the Justice Department in Miami, and Mike Lang, his investigator and best friend, are once again hunting a madman.
As the trail leads to a rogue DEA agent, Jake and Mike close in on the killer, not realizing that saving victim three means saving one of their own.
