Eighteenth entry in the series. The investigation of LaShawn Tompkins' murder seems straightforward enough. Upon his release from death row, the ex-drug dealer returned to his old neighborhood, where he was gunned down on his mother's doorstep. Just another case of turf warfare, right?
At least that's what it looks like on the surface to Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont, who's been handed the assignment under the strictest confidence. But as Beau starts digging, the situation becomes more complicated than he'd thought. It appears that LaShawn really had turned over a new leaf at the King Street Mission, and his murder was premeditated.
Meanwhile, Beau's lover and fellow cop, Mel Soames, is given her own hush-hush investigation. A routine check on registered sex offenders has revealed a disturbing pattern: they are dying off, not all due to natural causes.
Suddenly (Surprise!) the two investigations become entangled, and the couple begins to uncover a nightmarish conspiracy reaching to high places, dangerously high places!
