the sins of the past to catch a killer about to get away with
San Antonio private investigator Tres Navarre is used to working
on the edge-that razor-sharp line between legal and life sentence.
But this time he's stepped straight into a no-man's-land. When an
old friend appears at his door spattered with blood and wanted for
attempted homicide, Tres doesn't have to think twice about where
his loyalty lies-or the consequences.
Ralph Arguello is a criminal who put the street life behind him
when he married SAPD detective Ana DeLeon. Now Ana's been gunned
down and her fellow cops don't need to look far to find a prime
suspect. For Ana recently reopened the most infamous cold case in
SAPD history-the unsolved murder on notorious Mission Road eighteen
years before that threw the San Antonio underworld into bloody
chaos. Ana was about to bring charges against the suspected killer:
her husband, Ralph Arguello.Tres is sure that Ralph didn't do
it-and that he didn't shoot his wife. But with the police and the
Mafia both out for revenge, there's no one to turn to for help.
Now, armed and dangerous, the targets of a citywide manhunt, Tres
and Ralph have just hours to discover what really happened on
Mission Road almost two decades ago. To find the truth, they must
set a collision course with the past-and with a secret that will
tear their lives apart.
