Dauphin Island, AL: Three college students arrive at Jason Summers' beach house for the last big party of the season. Nausea strikes hard before the first shot of Tequila is ever poured: blood, everywhere. They have found the bodies. Reporters and politicos scramble for position. Three of the victims belong to the Beautiful People: a smooth entrepreneur, a Beauty Queen, a News Anchor. The fourth, Rebecca Jordan, is forgotten in the frenzy that surrounds the killings. Rebecca's mother, disgusted by the desecration of her daughter's memory, seeks help from Private Investigator Jack Delmas. He reluctantly accepts, and soon finds that appearances are not what they seem in this quaint community. Beneath its surface lies a netherworld peopled by debauched jet-setters, international smugglers, and cunning, unpredictable murderers. It is a world where innocence can be swallowed whole, and where the best intentions of people like Rebecca Jordan can distort into grisly bloodbaths like the one that consumed her. To win justice for Rebecca, Delmas allies with Jimbo McInnis, an oversized, fast-living, Hemmingway-quoting deputy sheriff. Together, they must delve behind the madness to find the truth. Doing so may cost them more than their reputations. Massacre Island Hegwood, Martin Private Investigator Jack Delmas has an ex in Memphis, a young daughter fast slipping away, and a practice made up of chasing down deadbeats or working for them...until a massacre in an island beach house changes everything. Three of the victims belong to the Beautiful People: a smooth entrepreneur, a beauty queen, a news anchor: The fourth-quiet, sincere Rebecca Jordan-is forgotten in the frenzy that surrounds the killings. Hired by Rebecca's mother, Delmas is digging for the truth behind the slayings. Teamed up with a big, sweet-talking, good ol' boy cop turned PI wannabe, Delmas quickly becomes the target of a mysterious bomber, an enraged gangster, an insane eco-terrorist and a dark conspiracy he never could have imagined.
