Summary

A three-year-old murder case was coming together nicely. A killer Hoke once put in prison has moved in across the street. And Hoke's daughter has blue hair. But now Hoke has to pretend to be a bum.

In a dusty corner of South Florida, Hoke enters a world of Haitian migrant workers, soup kitchens, and whores. In the searing heat he'll meet the man he's been sent to kill - the most vicious beast in the land....
