'Damage will leave you gasping' - Suspense Magazine
The Curtlees are the most powerful family in San Francisco, unscrupulous billionaires who've lined every important pocket in the Bay Area. So when Ro Curtlee was convicted of rape and murder a decade ago, the fallout for those who helped to bring him to justice was swift and uncompromising. The jury foreman was fired from his job. The lead prosecutor's dreams of becoming DA were dashed. And head homicide detective Abe Glitsky was reassigned to the police department's payroll office. And then Ro Curtlee's lawyers won him a retrial, and he was released from jail. Within twenty-four hours, a fire kills the original trial's star witness, and then a second fire claims another participant in the case, Abe is convinced: Ro is out for revenge. But with no hard evidence can Abe stop the violence before he finds himself in its crosshairs? How much more can he sacrifice to put Ro back behind bars and just how far across the line is he prepared to go in pursuit of justice?
