Gus Murphy and his girlfriend, Magdalena, are put in harm's way when Gus is caught up in the distant aftershocks of heinous crimes committed decades ago in Vietnam and Russia. Gus's ex-priest pal, Bill Kilkenny, introduces him to a wealthy businessman anxious to have someone look more deeply into the brutal murder of his granddaughter. Though the police already have the girl's murderer in custody, they have been unable to provide a reason for the killing. The businessman, Spears, offers big incentives if Gus can supply him with what the cops cannot-a motive. Later that same day, Gus witnesses the execution of a man who has just met with his friend Slava. As Gus looks into the girl's murder and tries to protect Slava from the executioner's bullet, he must navigate a minefield populated by hostile cops, street gangs, and a Russian mercenary who will stop at nothing to do his master's bidding. But in trying to solve the girl's murder and save his friend, Gus may be opening a door into a past that was best left forgotten. Can he fix the damage done, or is it true that what you break you own . . . forever?

If you are a person that abhors foul and inappropriate language you will NOT appreciate this book. I was introduced to Coleman by a couple of books I read that he wrote for the Robert B. Parker publisher. However this book was very disappointing. I felt that the writing was morally and sexually inappropriate. The language and attitude of most of the characters, including the female characters, was certainly not inspiring or desired, especially the main character. I quit after reading about 20% of the book.

I have always enjoyed Coleman's novels, but this is not one of his best.
