Table of Contents
The attempted abduction of a child of wealthy estranged parents becomes an urgent case for New York City police lieutenant Marian Larch when several people associated with the case turn up dead. Marian must lead the murder investigation while still watching over the child, who may still be in danger. At the same time, I have Marian exploring her relationship with her lover, Holland. Then Holland becomes a player in the case, suffering pain and humiliation -- and perhaps worse -- at the hands of a sadistic killer. Marian is forever changed by the realization of what she faces and what she might lose as she searches for the crimes' solutions. The collision of my main character's personal and professional lives makes this novel a study of a woman in a position of authority as well as a thriller.
