A classic, pulse-pounding thriller from the legendary Robert K.

To Butch Karp—a chief assistant district attorney with a formidable reputation as a brilliant and fearless prosecutor—the brutal assassination of Bollano family capo Ed Catalano appears to be a continuation of old-style wars between Mob families. But Willie Lie, leader of a Chinese gang called the White Dragons, insists that he and his cohorts were involved. The case is further complicated by an unscrupulous and ambitious U.S. attorney looking to use the Mob murder to advance his political career. And when Karp's twelve-year-old daughter witnesses a Chinatown gang slaying, she suddenly becomes a target herself.
But his child isn't the only loved one threatened. Karp's wife, Marlene—a private security consultant specializing in protecting stalked and abused women—is delving perilously into the decades-old death of a notorious Mob lawyer. And as their two investigations intertwine, Karp and Marlene must race to find answers before two of New York's most dangerous criminal organizations turn an unsuspecting city into a bloody battleground.About the Author:
