The struggle between power and justice: a prostitute, a homeless man, a politician, and murder.
The most unlikely of witnesses pull Ransom out of retirement and back to the streets of Las Vegas. The former homicide detective must uncover who’s leaking tips about the case and the murders - his former partner, his girlfriend, a senator? Who can he trust?
The killer serves a higher calling. Those sacrificed for the greater good of the people. Some lives are more disposable than others. Their lack of value to society makes them invisible.
Ransom sifts through an improbable group of witnesses, victims, and suspects. A strange mixture of water and oil. Individuals never likely to meet. Individuals never likely to find themselves in the same discussion. Their only common ground: murder.
Entitlement. Privilege. The self-prescribed political elite.
Shunning class and status, Ransom’s only drive is to satisfy the plea of the voiceless victims, no matter where the gavel lands. A life is a life. Ransom squares off against his arrogant foe to bring the killer to justice, to keep him from slipping through his fingers, and to make him answer for his crimes.
