In an expensive Miami neighbourhood, Sergeant Hoke Moseley, Homicide Division, is called to investigate the lethal overdose of a young junkie. But what seems like a routine OD gives Moseley cause to doubt - particularly when he meets the dead kid's stunningly attractive stepmother.
And now he's been told he has to move from his beloved El Dorado hotel to a proper apartment. With his two teenage daughters dumped on him, a troublesome ex-wife, and a new partner struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, it starts to feel like maybe that stepmother might be that answer to all his problems. Or maybe she's just the start of them . . .
