Thrown off the Boston Police Department, Tim Hennessey
ekes out a living on Cape Cod as a consulting detective. Retained by local police to solve a shocking, gruesome death that has terrified locals and tourists alike, Hennessey is also investigating the seemingly wanton destruction of performing arts buildings throughout the Cape.
As the suspense builds, Hennessey uncovers savage internal conflicts at a leading regional non-profit group. He exposes evil, horrifying acts done in the name of "progress." Grizzled as he is, Hennessey believes deeply in our criminal justice system... a well-placed belief?
Hennessey's work with fellow detective Phil Lipman and police administrator Kelly Coughlin-a kindred soul pulled into Hennessey's world-leads to a desperate, thrilling conclusion. One final question remains though: will a reckoning occur?
