Using a garbage bag of money which Vidal keeps in a secret closet, Gale hires a "reformed" drug smuggler to search the islands and ocean around Florida. She then employs an Everglades Indian and a militia group to help her search for Vidal on land.
Once Vidal is located, Gale tackles the problem of identifying all the conspirators and keeping Vidal, who has faked a loss of memory about the kidnapping, from being killed to cover up the crime. Simultaneously, Gale tries to prevent her lover, lawyer Derek Greene, from learning that being a law-abiding citizen is the least of her concerns as she struggles to save Vidal.
