South Beach -- where dangerous secrets refuse to stay buried in the sand. These secrets turn deadly when Gus Garcia, the beloved Mayor of South Beach, is murdered. Lt. Erica Whitney is mystified when the only clue left at the crime scene is the mark of "The Ghost", Miami's most notorious serial killer, thought gunned down 20 years ago. Much to Lt. Whitney's chagrin, the possible re-emergence of "The Ghost" has brought FBI Special Agent Harrison Pearce into the case, who is holding a few secrets of his own. On the other side of town, crime lord Isaac Santero is plotting a bold move to seize control of Miami's drug trade, with unexpected help from aspiring DJ Michael Bell. When Isaac's territory is threatened by the Cordero family, events turn deadlier than anyone had imagined.

Meanwhile, Carmen's upcoming tour is at the center of an escalating, bitter rivalry between Donovan Lear and Antigone de la Vega, former partners - and lovers - who now run the two most powerful record labels in Miami. Donovan's estranged daughter, Samantha Lear, owns "Fever", the hottest nightclub on South Beach. Samantha's life gets complicated when her flirting with Octavio Cruz, Carmen's manager and Donovan's Head of A&R, turns into something more.
