A wild party in a gentrifying East Bay neighbourhood. A heated argument that spills into the street. Gunshots. Chaos.
When the smoke clears, the mystery reveals itself: there is one victim whose death doesn’t match the others. She has been brutalized and abandoned, stripped of ID and left to die: it falls to Deputy Coroner Clay Edison to give her a name and a voice.
Clay embarks upon a journey into a hidden world where innocence and perversity mingle . . . and before long, his relentless pursuit of the truth will lead him right into the line of fire.
