Synopses & Reviews
When a teenaged girl and her infant daughter are shot to death outside the Double Deuce housing project, tenants of the gang-plagued neighborhood turn to Hawk for help. He, in turn, enlists Spenser's aid in finding the killer. Their investigation leads them to a dark world of drugs, death, and despair. Previous publisher: Putnam.
Hawk wants Spenser to wage war on a street gang. Susan wants Spenser to move in with her. Either way, Spenser's out of his element. So why not risk both?
