Retired Chief Petty Officer Tom Jones was murdered in his apartment complex in Orlando in what appeared to be a "drug deal gone bad." The police won't even do an autopsy on a dead drug dealer. Coast Guard Chief Warrant Officer Joe Traynor is asked by Tom's daughter to look into his death. His investigation ultimately leads to the largest meth case on the southeastern seaboard. In the meantime, the Russian Mafia, unhappy with being ripped off by Julie Chapman's father, seek revenge. Her father's death, once again comes back to haunt her and her grandmother, Tillie, placing their lives-and Joe's-in danger once again.
