Inhaltsangabe: It was a job Miami private investigator Max Mingus found hard to refuse: $10 million to locate billionaire's son, Charlie Carver - missing now for over three years.
Young Charlie disappeared on the island of Haiti, where over the decades scores of children have vanished. In a country dominated by voodoo, rumours abound of black magic and a mythical figure called "Mr Clarinet", who for years has been tempting children away from their families.
But could the truth be even more sinister than the legend?
To find out, Max will have to succeed where previous detectives have not only failed - but died. All of a sudden, this job isn't just about finding Charlie or his killers for the money - it's about staying alive...
