For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal
prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one
of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a
consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too
tangible when her boyfriend brings home a young street kid
who doesn't even realize he holds an important key to the
man's death. Tess agrees to protect the boy's identity no
matter what, especially when one of his friends is killed in
what appears to be a case of mistaken identity. But with
federal agents determined to learn the boy's name at any
cost, Tess finds out just how far even official authorities
will go to get what they want. Soon she's facing felony
charges -- and her boyfriend, Crow, has gone into hiding
with his young prot├»┬┐┬Żg├»┬┐┬Ż, so Tess can't deliver the kid to
investigators even if she wants to. Time and time again Tess
is reminded of her father's old joke, the one about the most
terrifying sentence in the English language: "We're from the
government -- and we're here to help."
