Kansas City's top mayoral aide is found dead in Mayor Jane Hughes' office.
Hughes valued the talents of her aide John Vithous. But others found him to be deceitful, dishonest and even cruel. His gruesome murder will not be easy to solve, for so many had good reason to kill him.
Sergeant Tom Burke must find the killer, and fast. But Burke finds there are too many suspects, and very litle time.
