As a cop with the city’s famed 87th Precinct, Steve Carella
has seen it all. Or so he thinks. Because nothing can prepare him for the sight
that greets him on a sweltering July night: fellow detective Mike Reardon’s
dead body splayed across the sidewalk, his face blown away by a .45.
Days later, Reardon’s partner is found dead, a .45-caliber
bullet buried deep in his chest. Only a fool would call it a coincidence, and
Carella’s no fool. He chalks the whole ugly mess up to a grudge killing until a
third murder shoots that theory to hell. Armed with only a single clue, Carella
delves deep into the city’s underbelly, launching a grim search for answers
that will lead him from a notorious brothel to the lair of a beautiful,
dangerous widow. He won’t stop until he finds the truth, or until the next
bullet finds him.
