Recovering alcoholic detective Karen Seagate and her straight-arrow Mormon partner Ryan Miner investigate the death of a young woman. The case gets caught up in racial profiling and politics as Seagate pushes forward--even while usually calm Miner's core beliefs come under threat. Mike Markel pens a powerful addition to the Seagate and Miner series.
Disgraced police detective Karen Seagate is drinking herself to death when the new Chief gives her a chance. A local politician has been murdered and the Chief puts Seagate and her old partner, Ryan Miner on the case.

Police Detective Karen Seagate is having a rough time with her family, the police department, and her drinking.
