"Joe Burgess is the most realistically drawn and memorable police detective I've encountered in years. This is as much a moral fable as it is a whodunit." ~Edward Morris, Verified Reviewer

On an icy February night, the body of Steven Pleasant, a prominent Portland, Maine physician, grows cold in his parked Mercedes. All signs point to a john killed by a disgruntled hooker: his pants are unzipped, wallet is gone, and the good doctor has a reputation for entertaining girls in his car.

But the deeper Detective Sergeant Joe Burgess digs, the muddier the case becomes. While juggling hookers, wives, ex-wives, fathers, stepfathers, dealers and doctors, a nurse on Pleasant's staff suggests another angle-disgruntled patients.

Now, ensconced in the darkness of a sleeping hospital, Burgess comes face-to-face with ghosts from his past and must decide what being a detective really means.

"If Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch lived in Maine, he'd be Joe Burgess." ~Verified Reviewer

"It was the emotion that gripped me as a reader and as a person. Kate Flora has accomplished what very few authors are able to do, she made me believe." ~Michael S., Verified Reviewer
