Ren Fleming had counted on his friend to join him on a trip to Haiti. Sam Beringer let him down. Now he’s agreed to retrieve Ren’s ashes and maybe learn about the hit-and-run in which he died. A simple mission. The least he can do. Yet, barely a day after arriving in Port-au-Prince, Sam stirs the same mysterious forces that have already killed his friend. Over the space of one hectic and violent week, Sam and Haitian journalist Gabrielle Marceau discover the secret behind Ren’s death—and their love for each other.
