His career derailed by the vengeful billionaire Curtlee family for his part in convicting one of their number for murder, former homicide detective Abe Glitsky learns that the killer has won a retrial at the same time a star witness has been murdered.
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.
