Plot

Mikhail and the Player arrive at the beach. They find beautiful model Sofia Soltero, burned alive. In the first chapter, they suspect famous private eye Estefan Riordan, hunter Alexandrio Bluewood, and victim's friend and diplomat Nolan Grazielle's daughter Sapphire Grazielle. It is also discovered that the killer drinks pina coladas and take organ transplant medication.

In the second chapter, Estefan calls the Player and Mikhail to his office to give you some information. He rants and rambles, but he does say one important thing. The victim was dating an actor, Jespen Braulino. Along with Braulino, the team also suspects cowgirl Kelsey Sphinx for the murder. It is also discovered that the killer listens to merengue music.

In the third chapter, an argument happens at the gazebo between Braulino and Grazielle. They were arguing about who Soltero loved more between the two of them, placing both accused in custody. This caused a bit of dueling until the Player and Mikhail calmed them down. The team gathered enough evidence to arrest private eye Estefan Riordan for the murder.

After denying evidence, Riordan confessed for the murder. He was hired by a small organization called the Watchful Eye. The Watchful Eye is attempting to take over South America, and required one of the most wealthiest people, Sofia Soltero, to join their side. When she declined, Riordan pushed her onto the roast rack and proceed to burn her. Riordan was sentenced to life in prison.

In 'Soft Haze', the team discovers more about the Watchful Eye and their acts. After letting her out of custody, Grazielle explains that they are planning to eliminate someone high in power of South America. Who it is is unknown, but a hint was provided at the victim's cottage. A message found says that the target is rather crooked.

Also in Soft Haze, Ruby Gervon, the team's profiler, asks a favor from the Player. Her daughter, Priscilla, would like an autograph from actor Jespen Braulino. Once the Player and Ruby finds his location, they receive the autograph and Priscilla is excited.

A few days later, the team is currently invited to a Valentine's Day parade in one of the most romantic places, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
