Abstract: Quando la polizia non può aiutarti, quando la stampa rischia di distruggerti, c'è un solo posto a cui puoi rivolgerti: Private. Sono Jack Morgan, ex pilota dei Marines sopravvissuto per miracolo a una missione in Afghanistan dalla quale molti dei miei commilitoni e amici non sono tornati. Il passato mi pesa addosso come una cappa di piombo e cerco di dimenticare i miei incubi buttandomi nel lavoro.

E in questo modo abbiamo sempre vinto. Finora. Perché non bastava indagare su un caso di corruzione ai massimi livelli e su un assassino seriale che a Los Angeles ha già ucciso dodici ragazzine e non intende fermarsi... C'è stato anche il barbaro omicidio della moglie del mio miglior amico, la dolce e adorabile Shelby Cushman: un'esecuzione in stile mafioso, assolutamente incomprensibile per una ragazza solare che non aveva nulla da nascondere. Forse...
