For twenty years, they moved from town to town every few months. They paid in cash. They kept only what they could carry. But 26-year-old Charlene Bailey and her father were a family, complete and happy.

And through the dark waters of the Florida straits and the narrow streets of Havana, the danger that awaits them is far too vicious to face alone . . .
