A fashion shoot on the powdery beaches of southwest Florida goes awry when a supermodel is found dead in her penthouse suite at the Ritz-Carlton. Chief suspect - ex-boyfriend and renowned designer, Dodge Maddison. But there are others: a new lover; a devious business partner; a bloodthirsty model; an ambitious photographer; and a mysterious designer - all with one thing in common - an uncontrollable lust for fame and fortune. Called to the rescue is best friend Ben Benson, chief of police of Dodge's small hometown outside Boston. Big Ben's no nonsense, bull-in-the-china-shop method of investigation promises to flush out the real killer and bring a quick resolve. Instead, he finds some treacherous goings-on in the fashion world; simmering rivalries, deadly jealousies and ruthless power plays for control of a multi-million dollar enterprise. And with more murder on the horizon, Big Ben cannot help but wonder if his best friend isn't designing it all.
