This police procedural by the Edgar Award-winning author of CALIFORNIA GIRL introduces San Diego police lieutenant Robbie Brownlow, who developed synesthesia after an enraged arsonist threw him out a hotel window three years ago. Now, Robbie can judge the emotional content and truth value of people's statements by the colored shapes he "sees" floating out of their mouths. He uses this ability to good purpose when someone murders Garret Asplundh, an investigator for San Diego's Ethics Authority looking into ties between a high-end call girl ring and several prominent city officials.
