Two LAPD detectives are at odds over a horrifying case in this “taut shocker” of a novel by an Edgar Award–winning author (The Boston Globe).
A pair of twins have been brutally murdered, and Los Angeles detectives George Cascade and Ed Fenner find themselves working a case with puzzling sexual overtones. When a young, intellectually disabled African American becomes the object of suspicion, tensions flare between the two officers—and it will push them to the edge before the truth can be sorted out.
“The kind of book you read at the point of a switchblade—seemingly faster than you can turn the pages.” —Kirkus Reviews
