Barbados Heat Summary

Congressman Shapply, a former music insider who now leads the crusade against offensive lyrics in rap songs, is attacked and murdered in front of his Washington, D.C., home. His son Nick is arrested and charged with murder. For veteran music journalist Mick Sever, covering this case is personal. Sever, best friend of the accused killer, believes his friend's claims of innocence. With the help of an old flame, Mick must penetrate the bizarre Shapply family (the icy matriarch Alicia, the disturbed daughter Amber, and the religious brother-in-law) to find the truth.

The investigation will take Mick from the halls of the Capitol to the beaches of Barbados. Threatened by unknown assailants and dangers at every turn, Mick becomes the hunted as the killer turns the tables in a stunning climax.

    Rock-and-roll journalist Mick Sever is back with a new assignment: interview music legend Danny Murtz. One of the most successful producers in history, Murtz has walls lined with platinum records - and a closet full of skeletons. But before Mick can hop a plane to the island paradise where Murtz has secluded himself after his latest "incident" (Murtz's romantic conquests have a way of vanishing into thin air), he's nearly run down by a speeding car. Coincidence?
