A murdered prostitute. An obvious suspect. Clear evidence. For once, Jericho Crewe has a straightforward crime to investigate, and Wade Granger isn’t involved.
It all seems so simple, but Jericho’s instincts won’t let him rest. As he investigates, he finds troubling suggestions that the murder is a part of something larger and more sinister. But working within the boundaries of the law may keep him from finding the truth. If Jericho doesn’t break the rules, an innocent man may rot in jail while a killer remains free to strike again.
Inevitably, it all comes back to Wade. Because who else knows as much about breaking rules? And who else knows Jericho the way Wade does—not wisely, but far, far too well?
In this story, we find Jericho doing his job, with no interference from the FBI or DEA. An actual case that is his to solve. Even though all the evidence points to one killer, it’s just to neat. With his instincts telling him one thing, how to prove otherwise.
I really felt the mental and emotional struggle that Jericho feels throughout this story. He is fighting to believe in a system that has let him down more then once. Also the same system is trying to dictate his personal life. When it all becomes to much, he must decide just what is important to him.
In this installment who did what is more important to our main character then what he I’m can prove. For Jericho this is a fundamental problem with how he sees his role in life. Wade is their around the edges, of course but not a main part in this book.
