Detective T.J. Peterson has enough problems in his private life; his estranged daughter, his fondness for alcohol, he really isn’t in the mood for all the crap that’s coming down on the job. A dead priest, beaten to death inside his own church, the body of a woman police can’t identify. It’s enough to drive Peterson to (another) drink. But the worst is still to come, when a mentally unstable teen lures the detective into the dark underbelly of the city and the world of human trafficking.
This isn’t a story for the faint of heart, the subject matter is harsh; but it’s all too true and Peterson is a compelling anti hero.
