Herbert Marioneaux, a Louisiana politician infamous for
changing his mind on hot-button issues, has been murdered
and his body posed to send a message. Baton Rouge homicide
detective Wallace Hartman has to figure out who’s sending
that message. DNA points to Eddie Pitkin, a social justice
activist who also happens to be the half-brother of
Wallace’s childhood best friend. But even with the
combative history between Pitkin and Marioneaux, murder
seems out of character for Pitkin, whose usual MO is to
confront the wealthy and powerful with their inconvenient
past. As Wallace digs deeper, she unearths a possible alibi
witness, along with evidence of a deeply troubled
relationship that points the finger of suspicion at
While Eddie’s supporters are convinced of his innocence,
his enemies are equally certain of his guilt. Under
pressure from all directions, Wallace pursues her
investigation into the dark heart of the political
establishment as Baton Rouge falls under the shadow of
escalating violence. When it appears a police department
insider may be sabotaging her efforts by leaking
information about the case, and after menacing messages are
left for her and her loved ones, Wallace is forced to
untangle a trail of old and disturbing secrets unaided by
those she most needs to trust.
