Detective Sergeant Sean Devereaux is assigned the case. He's t complaining--his Friday nights are seldom better spent. But the inquiry is t straightforward. Witness accounts are conflicting. The dead man appears to be an unintended victim, with the true target unkwn. T hat's the least of Devereaux's worries, though. His current case load includes an investigation into the deaths of the wife and daughter of a wealthy finance company director. His examination has revealed the situation is far more complex than anticipated, casting real doubt upon the division of incence and guilt. Devereaux's former colleague, John Hale, is in position to help.

T ogether the two men hunt for the truth from those who pursue self-gain by any means.
