Sixth in the excellent Texan PI series by the author of the Percy Jackson books
Ralph Arguello is a one-time criminal, now married to San Antonio policewoman Ana, and a friend of private investigator Tres Navarre. When DNA evidence emerges, tying Ralph to a long-unsolved underworld killing on Mission Road, and Ana turns up murdered, Ralph runs to the only person he knows can help him.
On the run from a city-wide manhunt, Tres arms himself and heads back to seedy Mission Road in a bid to discover what really happened eighteen years earlier and clear Ralph's name... but some secrets are better left buried.
