And there’s only one man who has a shot at finding him . . . Homicide detective Artemis Beam made his reputation hunting down serial killers. After getting shot by an armed robber–and stepping on the wrong toes in the NYPD–he’s been retired. The city needs him now, and finding the killer is his chance to get back into the life he loves.
