Gus Ramone is good police, a former Internal Affairs investigator now working homicide for the city's Violent Crime branch. His new case involves the death of a local teenager named Asa whose body has been found in a local community garden.

The murder unearths intense memories of a case Ramone worked as a patrol cop 20 years earlier, when he and his partner, Dan Doc Holiday, assisted a legendary detective named T.C. Cook. The series of murders, all involving local teenage victims, was never solved. In the years since, Holiday has left the force under a cloud of morals charges, and now finds work as a bodyguard and driver. Cook has retired, but he has never stopped agonizing about the Night Gardener killings.

The new case draws the three men together on a grim mission to finish the work that has haunted them for years. All the love, regret, and anger that once burned between them comes rushing back, and old ghosts walk once more as the men try to lay to rest the monster who has stalked their dreams.

    " Gritty realism set in DC. He has a real gift for creating believable characters on the darker side of life. Great plot too. "

    " If I liked procedurally this would be a good book. That being said, it has a ton of characters that are hard to keep straight. Too much going on for me. "

    " This was like one long episode of Law and Order in a book. If you're in to police play-by-plays then this is for you. You can tell the author has either done his homework or has done police work himself and I enjoyed the police point of view as I'm more accustomed to the police's critic's voice/s. "

    " Well-written, but not one of my favorite Pelecanos novels. "
