    Members of a notorious gang of teenage boys on an estate in east Manchester are being murdered in a particularly gruesome manner. Is it some kind of vendetta?

A white girl associated with the gang has gone to ground but why? The body count rises and Jeff is suspicious of certain individuals not directly involved with the estate but who may hold vital information, including his sister who comes back into his life following an incident between her employer and Jeff's nephew. Difficult and uncomfortable questions about race relations and the nature of sexual abuse can't be ignored as Jeff and his team try to find their way through a case that isn't quite as simple as just murder.

    "In Arnold's well-executed fifth Brandon Fisher FBI novel… FBI agent Paige Dawson becomes embroiled in a case, not as an investigator but as a suspect… Arnold does a good job creating an air of uncertainty surrounding the murder, and the chemistry among her FBI characters is convincing." 
    –Publisher's Weekly 
     
    Sometimes the past should stay there… 
     
    The murder is one of the most heinous FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher has ever seen. But that's not why he and two members of the team are rushing to California. The Bureau is interested because the prime suspect is one of their own, Paige Dawson. 
     
    But Paige didn't go to Valencia to kill anyone. She had set out on "vacation"—her new lover in tow—only to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. While the hands of the law are tied, she wants him to face the fact that he destroyed a young woman's life and know that, as an FBI agent, she'll be watching his every move. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she wound up in the back of a police cruiser. 
     
    Now Paige must face off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on the case, it's becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there, possibly waiting to strike again…
