Already celebrating his impending lucrative contract as professional quarterback in the insanely expensive Miami club The Dorset, hunky college star Brady Jensen got drunk in his cabana with his new agent Chip Ford and waitress-temptress Kristen Banks, who is found drowned in a fountain. Pressured, her colleague Sarah Walker admits manager Amanda made them take compromising pictures. Brady is arrested in a heroic pursuit, but fancy forensics set the team of a more elaborate plot. For one thing, Kirsten drowned not in water but a rare bottle of champagne ordered by tycoon Richard Ellison. Erica Sykes' sleazy reporting comes a price. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


When the victim's mobile phone was found in the pool, Boa Vista uses the hand dryer in the ladies restroom to dry out the phone so they could turn it back on. However, all she does is hold the phone under the hand dryer for a few minutes. Doing so would not, in any way, remove the water from inside the phone. It would merely dry the outside casing.
