Description

A dark and suspenseful debut

Detective T.J. Peterson has a problem, and it’s not just how much he’s drinking or the daily, silent, tormenting video calls from his estranged daughter. A Catholic priest has been bludgeoned to death in church, apparently by a symbol of his faith, and an unidentified woman’s body had been found. He’s barely holding it together. When a deranged teenager, a possible witness, crosses his path, he is propelled into a sleazy, violent world of underage prostitution, sexual abuse, and human trafficking as he pursues a merciless killer.

A stylish and riveting exploration of both the consequences of depravity and the sometimes-extraordinary resilience of the human spirit.

Editorial Review

“A stylish noir cop novel.” — Globe and Mail

"Gritty, raw and suspenseful from the first page . . . If you like yourself a true detective story, a good crime scene and the whodunit that unfolds, you are in for a ride . . . As dark and gritty as the story gets, Kroll’s writing is beautifully expressive." — Atlantic Books Today

“This isn’t a story for the faint of heart, the subject matter is harsh; but it’s all too true and Peterson is a compelling anti hero.” — Cayocosta 72 Book Reviews
