(Book 4 of the Jimmy Vega Mystery Series)
Detective Jimmy Vega, barely recovered from his own recent disgrace, finds himself in the crosshairs of a media frenzy when a teenage girl disappears one frigid January night. The girl, from a prominent local family, was last seen tutoring English to immigrants at his girlfriend's outreach center. Disturbing evidence soon trickles in, setting off deep-seated fears that spread well beyond the tiny suburban New York hamlet. It’s up to Vega—a man in conflict as both a cop and a Latino—to rise above the mounting fury and find a truth that is as compelling as it is deadly.
