Summary
  • "Beneath the surface of a blue-collar Midwestern city roil dark undercurrents of lust, power, revenge, and madness. Loren D. Estleman exposes the black heart of Gas City. The city's placid facade is ripped away when greed and corruption, ambition and desire ignite a crisis in the wake of a serial killer's grisly rampage." "Police Chief Russell has been paid to look the other way for more than two decades while mob boss Anthony Zeno ran the city's vices. But the death of Russell's wife reawakens his sense of duty, and his sudden moves to regain his lost control trigger a power struggle between him and his benefactor. The stakes get higher when ruthless politicians try to make capital out of rising crime statistics and the whiff of scandal. When news media looking for big headlines get wind of the story, what started as a minor dispute suddenly looks to blow Gas City sky high."
  • "Estleman, with an unerring eye for telling detail and an ear for dialogue that reveals the secret desires of his characters, crafts a deadly tapestry of love, jealousy, revenge, and redemption, a stunning portrait of the human condition."--BOOK JACKET
