Two bullets in the back of the head took care of Danny, and landed fledgling detective Nik Kane with the first big case of his career. He never expected that it would take twenty years to untangle the threads that made up the dead police officeras life. Two decades on and Nik has been badly injured in pursuit of his latest case.
