‘Lescroart’s expert crafting turns this legal thriller into quite a wild ride’ – Booklist

Patrol Specials, a private police force that keeps watch for paying clients, date back to the wilder days of San Francisco’s past. Unfortunately, Sam Silverman, an elderly shop owner, could no longer afford Patrol Special protection, and now he may have paid with his life. But Lt. Abe Glitsky, stuck in a paper-pushing job after being injured on duty, is hitting brick walls as he tries to get help from homicide. And his friend, Dismas Hardy, putting together a high-stakes lawsuit against the Patrol Specials, suddenly finds himself defending a friend and local bar owner who’s been accused of Silverman’s death. Now, blocked at every turn, both Hardy and Glitsky may be forced to protect not only themselves, but their nearest and dearest – as they step cautiously into a world where the only law is survival…
