Riassunto: As an African-American woman in the predominantly white-male LAPD, homicide detective Charlotte Justice knows about heat. But now, thanks to twelve decent, pro-police jurors in Simi Valley, Los Angeles is a city rife with fires and riots. Forty-eight hours into the maelstrom, a prominent black doctor is mistaken for a car thief. Justice quickly defuses the violent confrontation, saving Dr. Lance Mitchell from a potentially savage beating by L.A.'s finest. But that's just the corner of a more ominous picture.
For the body of "Cinque" Lewis is found nearby with the good doctor's wallet beneath it. A one-time radical, Lewis murdered Justice's husband and baby girl in a hail of bullets thirteen years ago, then dropped out of sight. Navigating a terrain riddled with emotional land mines, defying the staunch LAPD hierarchy, Justice now sets out to uncover the shady truth connecting Mitchell and Lewis--but by reliving the tragic past, she may be forced to repeat it. . . .
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Dal retro di copertina:
"Fast-paced, more twisted than a pretzel . . . The tale Woods spins around [Charlotte Justice] is as much about race and racism in L.A. as it is about crime."
--Los Angeles Times
"[WOODS] SETS SCENES THAT SNATCH YOU IN AND HOLD YOU. . . . Detective Justice can hold her own among such tough-broad law and order types as Kinsey Milhone, Kay Scarpetta, and Christy Love."
--The Dallas Morning News
