Synopses & Reviews
Hardy's best friend, Lieutenant Abe Glitsky, has kept a secret from him...and everyone else. Hardy never knew that Abe had a daughter-until she was shot dead. It seems obvious that the heroin addict hovering over her body with a gun is the guilty party, and Glitsky has few qualms about sweating a confession out of him. But there is more to this murder-much more. And as both Hardy and Glitsky risk their lives to uncover the truth, others are working hard to stop them.

“Excellent stuff.”—The San Jose Mercury News
When an up-and-coming San Francisco attorney is found dead in an alley as a homeless heroin addict holds a gun and lingers over the body, it looks like a robbery gone wrong. But it hits very close to home for homicide detective Abe Glitsky. Unknown to anyone, the victim was his daughter. There is much more to this murder, and lawyer Dismas Hardy and Glitsky risk their lives to uncover the truth.
