Carmel, California is a scenic, peaceful tourist haven where James Dewitt is the police force’s only detective. His usual caseload is stolen bicycles and the occasional burglary—but things are about to change with frightening speed.
A series of apparent suicides—which soon prove to be murders—shocks the community. Dewitt, a former forensic scientist, struggles with the smallest of clues in his quest for the killer, while departmental turf wars and local politics increase the pressures on his investigation. His steps are further dogged by renegade ex-cop Howard Lumbrowski—the man Dewitt blames for his wife’s death. How is Lumbrowski connected to the killings? And why does he have information from Dewitt’s confidential files? Dewitt finds himself playing a dangerous game, breaking his own rules in a desperate search for answers . . .
“A natural storyteller . . . He keeps the thread going, twisting the details . . . Dancing the forensic shuffle without missing a step.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
