When things go wrong, losing his job is the least of his problems. As Temple's murder investigation continues, he uncovers a tangled web of deceit, betrayal and blackmail, which leads him to a depraved undercover world existing in the shadows of society, where only Temple can find the killer. As Temple's personal and professional lives are caught in tight the grip of the past that won't let him go, the fallout continues to reverberate through his life and threatens to unravel everything he holds dear."--Publisher's description.
