Everyone becomes a suspect, and is up to Jack and Detective Logan to find the offender before they strike again.

Hurricane winds are reaping havoc as it approaches the coast of South Florida. As an evacuation order is issued for Miami Beach, electric power and cell service are down, leaving Jack and Logan without any means to communicate. But our detectives, guests, and hotel staff aren’t going anywhere. One of the victims was found infected with the Corona virus, and no one is allowed out of the hotel.

In another riveting whodunit in the style of Holmes’s and Poirot, Ryder and Logan have to decipher these murders the old fashion way. No forensics, no clues left behind. They have to outsmart the killer, or is it killers? Six of the guests, two of which are victims, are owners of venture capitalist company, better known as vulture capitalist, on a corporate retreat. The other four are two sisters, and two young guys they hooked up with at a South Beach club two nights ago.
