Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>The death of internal affairs investigator Andy Fallon is a potential political bomb for the Minneapolis Police Department. Andy Fallon was gay, and he was investigating a possible cop connection in the brutal murder of another gay officer. But Andy¿s death looks like suicide ¿ or an unfortunate and embarrassing accident: death by auto-erotic misadventure ¿ and the pressure is on from the top brass to close the case as soon as possible.<br> But Andy Fallon¿s ex-lover doesn¿t believe Andy died by his own hand ¿ accidentally or otherwise. He believes Andy¿s death is tied to his work, and he presses lead detective Sam Kovac to find another answer ¿ one that won¿t be popular with anyone.<br> With the help of Amanda Savard, Fallon¿s supervisor, Kovac begins to investigate the cases that Andy was working on and the deeper he digs, the more suspicious he becomes. It begins to look as if Andy Fallon might have hit on something that got him killed. And Andy might not be the final<br> victim . . .<br> As Kovac and his partner, Tinks Liska, peel back the layers of this complex case, they will find their careers and their lives on the line, because someone wants the truth left dead and buried. Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust.</p>

Follow-up to the bestselling Ashes To Ashes, Dust To Dust sees Sam Kovac investigate a possible cop connection in the brutal murder of another gay officer. The case has already caused the death of the original internal affairs investigator.

Library Journal Review

Andy Fallon, a gay Minneapolis police officer, hangs dead in his bedroom. A week later Iron Mike Fallon, a former cop and Andy's father, shoots himself with his service revolver. Detectives Nikki Liska and Sam Kovac are not happy with the suspicious circumstances and the too-swift closing of both cases. They continue to nose around, causing unexpected people to react to their search with panic, threats, and attempted murder. What is the secret behind these deaths, and how are all the people connected? Hoag's story is well told; revelations come slowly and tantalizingly, and the characters are well drawn. Toward the end of the tale, explanation and detail are ignored to some extent in favor of suspense and action, but this does not detract from the overall quality of the book. Nick Sullivan reads with versatility and feeling. Recommended for all collections. Joanna M. Burkhardt, Univ. of Rhode Island Coll. of Continuing Education Lib., Providence (c) Copyright 2010.
