"A tremendous talent."--Lee Child

"Chazin holds the reader from beginning to end." -- Suspense Magazine

"Chazin delivers a complex, suspenseful story with the grace of a ballerina and the impact of a boxer's fist." --William Kent Krueger

A reported home invasion in an upscale New York community forces Detective Jimmy Vega into a life-or-death decision. A Hispanic man who fits the description of the armed intruder is fleeing the scene. When he refuses to surrender--and reaches into his pocket--Vega has just seconds to act. Soon, a tragic mistake takes an even darker turn when Vega uncovers links between the dead man and his own mother's unsolved murder.

Vega's need for answers propels him back to his old Bronx neighborhood, where he's viewed as a disgraced cop, not a homegrown hero. It also leaves him at odds with his girlfriend, activist Adele Figueroa. But when a shocking piece of evidence surfaces, it's clear someone will do whatever it takes to keep Vega from putting the pieces together. Only by risking everything will Vega find justice, redemption, and most elusive of all: the ability to forgive himself.

"Chazin pairs a ripped-from-the-headlines plot, sensitively portrayed, with a terrific mystery that keeps on surprising right to the end. Don't miss this series." --Robert Dugoni

"Chazin's thoughtful prose ratchets up the tension with each chapter, and she has a gift for creating three-dimensional characters whom readers will care about." -- Library Journal

"Get ready for a roller coaster of emotions as you plow through this tense, timely novel." --Julia Dahl

A good read!! Jimmy Vega is called to home invasion and he chases subject, subject doesn't follow directions and subject is shot. This book is full of twist and turns, characters are strong and the plot thickens. You read all the aftermath a police involved shooting. The affect on loved ones, the police themselves and outsiders. This book pulls you in and doesn't let you go till the very end. Interesting subject and a good book!

Some family tree diagrams would have helped, as I kept getting lost in all the relatives.
