As a detective lieutenant with the LAPD, Peter Decker witnessed enough ugliness and chaos for a lifetime. Now he and his spirited wife, Rina Lazarus, are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York.
But working for the Greenbury Police Department isn’t as fulfilling as Decker hoped. Decker is underwhelmed and frustrated by his new partner, Tyler McAdams, a former Harvard student and young buck with a bad attitude. Just when he thinks he’s made a mistake, Decker is called to an actual crime—a possible break-in at the local cemetery.
Suddenly Decker’s job is anything but boring, and the case might be too much to handle for a sleepy town that hasn’t seen a murder for nearly a quarter century. Decker will need to use every bit of his keen mind, his thirty years of experience as a homicide cop, and much-appreciated help from family and old friends to stop a callous killer and uncover a cabal so bizarre that it defies logic.

They were four boys who shared everything – the laughter and bruises of an impoverished upbringing in New York’s West Side. Then one of their pranks misfired – a man nearly died and they were sent away to a reformatory school. There they suffered the worst abuse the guards could inflict on them. They were forever scarred by their experiences.
Eleven years later two of them became killers for the mob. They met the ringleader of the guards who abused them – and shot him dead in front of several witnesses. No one thought they would see the outside of a prison again – but the four friends banded together once more and in one last, audacious stand brought their own vengeance to the courtroom.
