About this item
THREE SHIRT DEAL:Truit Hickman is a small-time crook doing life in California’s notoriously brutal Corcoran State Prison for the murder of his mother. He admitted to the crime, but now Hickman claims his confession was coerced by the cops. A beautiful Internal Affairs detective, Secada “Scout” Llevar, asks Shane to help investigate, and he agrees after learning the original homicide detective was Brian Devine, a ruthless cop with whom Scully has a bad history. What begins as a routine review quickly turns into something much more deadly.
Meanwhile, Shane and Alexa are struggling to save their marriage, which has come perilously close to disintegration since Alexa’s near-fatal shooting. Could the answer to their marital troubles be tied to the case he’s investigating? In Cannell’s heart-pounding thriller, Shane is tried in ways he has never been, risking his family, his job, and his life.
ON THE GRIND:Charged with felony misconduct in a high-profile solicitation of murder case, Scully is faced with an impossible decision: either quietly resign from his job as a detective for the LAPD or face criminal prosecution. His wife, Alexa, the chief of detectives, leaves him, seeking a divorce for his dalliance with the accused in the case, a well-known Hollywood actress. His son Chooch won’t even speak to him. Life as Scully knows it is over. Or so it seems...
In order to make a living the only way he knows how, Shane seeks employment from a police department that has been known to hire rejects from other departments: the Haven Park PD. The department is a hotbed of corruption. Relentlessly harassed by an overzealous FBI agent and under the constant, violent, and hyper paranoid scrutiny of his new comrades-at-arms, Shane finds himself in a snare. His estranged wife may be the only one who can get Shane out of this mess alive. The question is: Is she willing to?
