About the Book

Homicide detective Tom Cavanaugh is tasked with investigating the truth behind threatening letters sent from a prisoner in a women’s correctional facility to a childhood friend, now a criminal judge. Are the threats real or the imagination of a prisoner looking for preferential treatment? The urgency of the investigation increases as, one by one, people involved with the manslaughter conviction of a woman who tied a ten-month-old child to a radiator start dying. As Cavanaugh tries to unravel the murders and find the person or persons behind them, his brother, Jesuit priest Jack Bennis, joins the hunt as he thinks he knows the assassin is someone who once tried to kill him and has a personal grudge against him.
