"Great characters, interesting plot, action-galore and 'cop-speak' that is realistic enough to put you right in the thick of things, this is a police-procedural that is not to be missed." ~John E. Donovan, Verified Reviewer
Burgess's hopes for a calm Columbus Day picnic slam up against reality when two boys spot a dead body in the water.
It's Reggie the Can Man—a damaged, alcoholic veteran who Burgess has tried to patch back together since they returned from Vietnam. Now, Reggie's fight for redemption is over.
Then the ME questions Reggie's accidental drowning, giving Burgess one last chance.
As Burgess dives deep, he uncovers Reggie's ex-wife, his scofflaw son, industrial toxins, corrupt businessmen, and that Reggie isn't the only one in need of redemption.
"Redemption was right up there with those by my favorite mystery writers (Ian Rankin, Carolyn Rose, Felix and Dick Francis)." ~David Edgar Cournoyer, Verified Reviewer
