It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. When police and fire department personnel rush door to door in a frenzied evacuation effort, they discover the week-old corpse of an apparent suicide, in his lap a photo album of seven brutally murdered young women. And when the suicide victim is identified as a former suspect in one of the murders, the news turns Elvis Cole's world upside down.Three years earlier Lionel Byrd was brought to trial for the murder of a female prostitute named Yvonne Bennett. A taped confession coerced by the police inspired a prominent defense attorney to take Byrd's case, and Elvis Cole was hired to investigate. It was Cole's eleventh-hour discovery of an exculpatory videotape that allowed Lionel Byrd to walk free. But the discovery of the death album in Byrd's lap now brands Elvis as an unwitting accomplice to murder. Captured in photographs that could only have been taken by the murderer, Yvonne Bennett was the fifth of the seven victims ? two more young women were murdered after Lionel Byrd walked free. So Elvis can?t help but wonder ? did he, Elvis Cole, cost two more young women their lives?Elvis Cole and Joe Pike desperately fight to uncover the truth about Lionel Byrd and his nightmare album of death ? a truth hidden by lies, politics, and corruption in a world where nothing is what it seems to be.

Synopsis:

It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. As the residents of Laurel Canyon are being evacuated from their homes, Police and Fire Department personnel find the corpse of a recluse who apparently committed suicide. Clutched in his lap is a photo album containing photographs of seven young women who have been murdered. LAPD homicide detectives had never connected the seven murders before and only one suspect has been charged in any of the murders - the suicide now discovered in the fire, Elliot Martin. Three years earlier, Martin had been brought to trial, but his defense attorney hired Elvis Cole to investigate. Cole found an exculpatory videotape that prompted the judge to dismiss the charges, but now Cole doesn't know what to believe and he digs hard to uncover the truth and escape his terrible guilt.
