When the body of a friend of Detective Ernesto Alamares washes up on a beach, it's Alex who realizes the international smugglers who just checked in at the resort may be involved. While Ernesto tracks down the murderer, Alex goes undercover with Detective Kai Mendoza to catch the smugglers, but Alex's hypertension flares when he realizes what kind of contraband is being trafficked.
Alex Walker is a former US DEA agent, forced into early retirement. Once the DEA's most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner's betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension has sent him as far from the madness as he can go - a small tropical island in the Philippine Archipelago. He now runs the gift shop in the island's luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the US Naval base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to Jimmy Buffett.
But the island's luxury resort has attracted rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he's pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police or running into people from his old life. And the problem is, he likes it.
