Donny Moore, a New Yorker with Barbadian roots and an ex-Marine makes a chance reunion with fellow Columbia NYC alumni, the stunning Marie Haughton. Marie has done well for herself, now the CEO of a five-star hotel and casino in Barbados – the Caribbean playground of the rich and famous. She invites Donny to party with her friends Opal Cadette, a recently-crowned Miss New York/Caribbean beauty queen and Glenda Travis, a wily director of the beauty pageant.
When Marie is shot and Glenda goes missing in Barbados, Donny the last person to see Glenda alive becomes a prime suspect in her disappearance and a person of interest, especially for the American News Media. Donny tries to comfort Opal, a stranger to Barbados, but with more tricks than a magician, the crafty Opal deceives him. Suddenly he’s out of his depth and entangled in a web of diamond smuggling and international drug-running villains. Scheming drug-runners make him an UZI target, and a depraved diamond smuggler, plans to carve him up.
