Florida Politics. The only thing predictable is the unpredictability.
When Janis is fired from her job at the newspaper, she focuses on the causes that matter to her. The environment and the economy. That embroils her in the 2014 election.
When her good friend Mercedes encounters danger and is brutally murdered, Janis begins to investigate.
She finds herself in a political maelstrom of big money, lottery, and interests with opposing goals. Will she be able to find the crux of the problem—and Mercedes’ killer? Will she be able to expose corruption before anyone else is put in danger?
