Elle Harrison is back! She and her pals Jen, Becky and Susan travel to Mexico where Jen is having cosmetic surgery and where they’ll stay with her in a plush hotel suite. Soon after they arrive, Elle sees the woman in the adjacent balcony fall to the ground. The dead woman’s room is then occupied by another plastic surgery patient, Elle finds her brutally mutilated body on the same balcony.
Meantime, Jen’s doctor takes an interest in Elle; a woman in the hotel asks Elle to help her fend off a creepy stalker; a veiled woman sneaks into Elle’s suite at night, and Elle’s late husband Charlie reappears (or Elle imagines that he does) to save her when she gets pushed under the water in the ocean and nearly drowns.
As dangers swirl and intensify, Elle is forced to face her unresolved issues with Charlie, even as she races to find the connections between the murders before more patients–including Jen–become are killed, and before she herself becomes prey.
