An unputdownable reissued thriller, from the best-selling author of ICARUS and APHRODITE.
Police Chief Justin Westwood was content to escape his big-city past in sleepy East End Harbour. But the brutal murder of a Wall Street shark is about to change everything...
While Justin is in bed with his married lover, her husband is murdered. He can provide a solid alibi for her, but his own position isn't so clear cut - after all, it's he who has the contacts to arrange for his rival's removal.
At least that is what his bosses think, so Justin is on his own - it's up to him to solve the crime. A trail of dead bodies draws him back home to Providence, RI, where he must deal with the demons of his past. Here, Justin will discover a complex corporate scam with unimaginable murky depths and, at the heart of it all, a deadly individual whose greatest joy lies in human suffering and death.
