Homicide Sergeant Matthew Payne is used to murder, but lately, there’s been an awful lot of it in Philadelphia. A gangland shooting in a popular tourist location has left six dead, most of them innocent bystanders, and days later the body of a headless Latina turns up in the Schuykill River. Everybody assumes they’re not related, but Payne can’t shake the hunch that there’s something more to it–and that hunch leads him far from the City of Brotherly Love to the Texas-Mexico border.
A thrilling read by W.E.B. Griffin.
