Private investigators Derek Strange and Terry Quinn have found a woman whose testimony could make the difference between a death sentence and a return to the streets for the crime lord. First they have to get her to talk. Then they have to keep her alive.

"A remarkably revealing portrait of urban life, encompassing both the broad sociopolitical questions and the most intimate matters of heart and mind." (Booklist)
"This is vintage Pelecanos, with characters to remember, dialogue that rocks, an unsentimental, kinetic tableau of the D.C. underworld and, most of all, a conscience." (Publishers Weekly)
