If this is the low point of her series, then it''s a series woth having. Now another agent has died under similar circumstances. Guided by informants, scattered clues, and the hard wisdom of the streets, Marti scours the city's underbelly for the truth she must have: the kind of truth that can give a grieving woman back her life, or take it away all over again.
A mother, a widow, a black woman cop, Marti MacAlister lives and works in a quiet suburb.
