A 12-year-old girl is the desperate focus of three men—John, a dedicated young teacher searching for vigilante justice, Charlie, a small-time private detective with a checkered past, and Steven, a top mafia narcotics importer.
Their paths cross when John makes a shocking, vengeful move to save his eighth-grade students from Detroit’s vicious drug wars, Steven’s young daughter goes missing, and Charlie, hired to find her, confronts a moral dilemma that will change all their lives.
Tightly plotted and action packed, this second book of The detroit im dyin Trilogy can be read as a standalone and is a powerful urban crime thiller laced with noir secrets and murder. Its furious final chapters spin a kidnapping scheme so bizarre that it just might work.
