Come to find out that Abe Glitsky has an illegitimate grown daughter who has been found dead on the street – a junkie standing over her with a gun in his hands. To complicate matters she was becoming an important presence in San Francisco politics.
The bust is easy – take the addict, Cole Burgess, into custody and wring a confession out of him. Done deal. But Burgess gets Dismas Hardy for an attorney so it won’t be that easy – and Glitsky is torn between sticking by the police force and wanting to find his daughter’s killer.
This is probably the weakest of the Lesroart books I’ve read but I may be burning out on listening to crime fiction.
