John Bekker was working on a special task force investigating organized crime when his wife Carol was raped and brutally murdered in front of their 5-year-old daughter Regan. Bekker goes off the rails and becomes an alcoholic living in a beach trailer on his disability income; Regan, who has never spoken since the crime, lives in a facility catering to her needs. One morning Bekker wakes up in an empty room where he goes through the hell of detox. When he recovers, he finds that he's in the home of Eddie Crist, a mob boss dying of cancer. Crist swears he had nothing to do with Carol's death, although he suspects his hot-headed son Michael may have been involved before his death. Now he wants Bekker to find out who really did it. He provides him with a private investigator's license and all the money he needs. So Bekker reaches out to his former partner Walter Grimes, who allows him access to all the case files. He learns that the police and even the FBI went all out to solve Carol's death and find out who killed Bekker's informant, all to no avail. Bekker reconnects with his former colleagues and his sister-in-law Janet and goes over the case material looking for that one clue that will help him break the case. Suddenly Bekker and his family are targets for a killer determined to bury the truth. Read full book review >
