"Wendelboe is a skilled writer who ratchets up the suspense." ―Margaret Coel, New York Times bestselling author of Winter's Child

Former disbarred Philadelphia attorney J. Balm Hendy found his calling chasing ambulances and drawing easy out-of-court settlement checks. He is successful. He is shady. He is a shyster in over his head when a 10-year-old homeless girl guilt trips him into defending her father in a murder case. A simple plea deal turns into an investigation by J. Balm, plunging him and his misfit associates into the seedier side of Denver that cutthroats and thieves, killers and gangbangers call their lair. He is thwarted and threatened at every turn by ghosts of his past and ghosts of his present, dangerous ghosts that suddenly show J. Balm that his very life could depend on finding the true murderer―before the murderer finds him.

About the Author

C. M. Wendelboe entered the law enforcement profession when he was discharged from the Marines as the Vietnam war was winding down. In the 1970s, his career included assisting federal and tribal law enforcement agencies embroiled in conflicts with American Indian Movement activists in South Dakota. He moved to Gillette, Wyoming, and found his niche, where he remained a sheriff's deputy for more than 25 years. In addition, he was a longtime firearms instructor at the local college and within the community. During his 38-year career in law enforcement he had served successful stints as police chief, policy adviser, and other supervisory roles for several agencies. Yet he always has felt most proud of “working the street.” He was a patrol supervisor when he retired to pursue his true vocation as a fiction writer.
