Brice Hanchett was almost legend..and believed it. Chief of surgery at a San Francisco hospital and head of its transplant team, he let power get to him. He played God.

Now Hanchett is history, shot down in cold blood. The cops find lots of suspects. More people wanted him dead than alive -- women he had betrayed, children he failed, rival doctors, patients and their families. All had motives, but there has to be a clue to the killer. It's up to Frank Hastings of homicide to find it.

"Gives San Francisco an authentic urban grip the city hasn't felt since Hammett." (Booklist)
