Former DA and rookie writer William Landay delivers a white-hot thriller. When a Boston DA is found brutally murdered in a lakeside cabin in rural Maine, local Police Chief Ben Truman is forced to head down to Boston to follow the few fragile leads he has in the case. From a retired Boston cop, he learns the ropes of big-city policing, and finds that it is a more corrupt and cynical endeavor than the job he's been doing back in Versailles, Maine. The search for the murderer will lead Ben to the highest echelons of the Boston Police Department, where the ghosts of past crimes haunt the present case, and Ben finds himself defending his own innocence while trying to uncover the truth about the murder.
