While running his dad’s construction company, Danny learns that his ex-fiancĂ©e Mary is in danger, and takes it upon himself to do something about it….

Mike is working at a rival casino, but when he uncovers a suspicious plot afoot, he finds himself becoming the boy who cried wolf….

Delinda takes on the challenge of managing an exclusive nightclub, but her tempestuous relationship with a pro football player causes unforeseen troubles….

Find out everything you missed during the long hot summer when Danny and his friends struggled to go their separate ways.

Note 1: At the end of Season Two of the NBC TV series, The Montecito was destroyed. At the beginning of Season Three, a new Montecito had been built, over a span of what the series said was six months. Gary Scott Thompson, the show’s creator, wanted a novel that explained what the series characters had been doing during the six-month interim. Working together, Gary and I came up with the broad strokes of each character’s story, and I wrote the book. It’s almost unheard of for a TV show to refer back to events described in a tie-in novel, but Gary made sure that some of the events in the novel were mentioned on-air.

Note 2: This novel won the Scribe Award, presented by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, for Best Original Novel – General.
