Cops can make mistakes, even when they’re not rookies. If
anyone knows that it’s Cass Raines.
Cass took a bullet two years ago after an incompetent
colleague screwed up a tense confrontation with an armed
suspect. Deeply traumatized, Cass resigned from the Chicago
PD, leaving one less female African-American on the force.
Now she’s the head of a one-woman private investigation
agency, taking on just enough work to pay the bills. But
when the only father figure she’s ever known, Father Ray
Heaton, asks her to look into a recent spate of vandalism at
his church, she readily agrees to handle it.
Only hours later Cass is horrified to discover Father Ray’s
murdered body in the church confessional, a dead gangbanger
sprawled out nearby. She knew Pop, as she called him, had
ticked off plenty of people, from slumlords to politicians,
with his uncompromising defense of the downtrodden. But a
late-night random theft doesn’t seem like much of a motive
at a cash-strapped parish. The lead detective assigned to
the case is all too eager to dismiss it as a burglary gone
awry, just another statistic in a violent city. But Cass’s
instincts tell her otherwise, and badge or no badge, she
intends to see justice done . . .
