The sixth novel in the multiple Shamus and Edgar Award nominated Bragg series that placed Jack Lynch among the masters of detective fiction.

Bragg runs into Jo Sommers, a woman he longed for many years ago... and who is now unhappily married. Hour's later, she's accused of murdering her husband. Bragg agrees to help prove that Jo is innocent, discovering a tangled web of blackmail, extortion, and murder, stretching forty years into the past... to a secret so horrible, it's still worth killing to keep it buried.
