For his 22nd book, John Lescroat draws inspiration from a real-world story of a rapist-murderer who gets to walk free. About ten years ago San Francisco homicide detective Abe Glitsky nearly sacrificed his career to put a powerful man behind bars. Now, thanks to his rich family's connections and money, Ro Curtlee is out on bail. As soon as Ro is wandering the streets again, a series of brutal crimes--suspiciously similar in their modus operandi to his past crimes--occur around the city. Abe is convinced that Ro is behind these revenge crimes, but he must find irrefutable proof--or risk everything once again.
