Introducing Detective P.T. Marsh in a swift and bruising
debut where Elmore Leonard's staccato prose meets Greg Iles'
How can you solve a crime if you've killed the prime
Detective P.T. Marsh was a rising star on the police force
of Mason Falls, Georgia--until his wife and young son died
in an accident. Since that night, he's lost the ability to
see the line between smart moves and disastrous decisions.
Such as when he agrees to help out a woman by confronting
her abusive boyfriend. When the next morning he gets called
to the scene of his newest murder case, he is stunned to
arrive at the house of the very man he beat up the night
before. He could swear the guy was alive when he left, but
can he be sure? What's certain is that his fingerprints are
all over the crime scene.
The trouble is only beginning. When the dead body of a black
teenager is found in a burned-out field with a portion of a
blackened rope around his neck, P.T. realizes he might have
killed the number-one suspect of this horrific crime.
Amid rising racial tension and media scrutiny, P.T. uncovers
something sinister at the heart of the boy's murder--a
conspiracy leading all the way back to the time of the Civil
War. Risking everything to unravel the puzzle even as he
fights his own personal demons, P.T. races headlong toward
an incendiary and life-altering showdown.
