A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Sequel to Patricia Cornwell's bestselling title, At Risk. D.A. Lamont has a special job for Garano. As part of a new public relations campaign about the dangers of declining neighborhoods, she's sending him to Watertown to "come up with a drama" and she thinks she knows just the case that will serve. Garano is very skeptical, because he knows that Watertown is also the home base for a loose association of municipal police departments called the FRONT, set up in order that they don't have to be so dependent on the state -- much to Lamont's anger. Garano senses a much deeper agenda here -- but he has no idea just how deep it goes. In the days that follow, he'll find that Lamont's task, and the places it leads him, will resemble a house of mirrors. Everywhere he turns, Garano's not quite sure if what he's seeing is true.
