One of the missing women is Michael Whalen's on again off again love, Marie D'Alessio.
In a Herculean effort to unshackle himself from his sister's emotional bonds Michael becomes tangled in a net of manipulation, murder, human trafficking and corruption. Power and money bait the trap. Soon, they all find themselves drowning in a pit of "old money" covered with the stench of decay and abused societal privilege. Eight lives are on a collision course; each tainted by their own twisted version of right and wrong.
