An EdgarŽ and Macavity Award-winning Author -- Prostitution has been legal in Rhode Island for over a decade. Liam Mulligan, an old-school reporter at a dying Providence newspaper, suspects the governor has taken payoffs to keep it that way. Then a child?s severed arm is discovered in a pile of garbage at a pig farm, and the body of an internet pornographer is found at the base of Newport?s famous Cliff Walk. As Mulligan keeps digging into the state?s thriving sex business, strange connections emerge.
