About this title


Although Jake Phillips had recently been the golden boy of Chicago's elite homicide division, now he finds himself on the verge of suspension. Having recently put everything on the linerisking his job, his marriage, and everything he held most dearto clear the name of his partner, Mondo, who became the prime suspect in a murder case, Jake Phillips is now finding out precisely how much it has cost him. He crossed over an invisible line and no longer seems able to find his way back.
Having warned him repeatedly that his obsession with his cases was consuming him, Jake's wife has now called it quits and has taken their infant daughter with her. Even Mondo, who knows exactly how much he owes Jake Phillips, has been forced to pull rank, with a stern reminder that he's the boss now and if Jake doesn't shape up immediately, he'll have to take his badge.
As his life quickly proceeds to unravel, Jake stumbles upon the truth about a homicide case within his precinct - a truth that could cost him his career or change his life. Faced with a moral dilemma at this lowest point in his life, there's precious little to lose, and Jake must decide whether he will take the easy way out to save his career and turn his life around, or once again put it all on the line to do the right thing.

From Kirkus Reviews:

What a nasty kettle of fish Gaitano has ladled for Chicago's Special Victims unit this time. There's Ray McCauley, the trash- talking radio jock with a gambling problem; Tommy Malardi, the rookie bagman who beats McCauley half to death and then takes his personal check for his gambling debts; Kevin Wrisberg, McCauley's creditor, who's scouting Tommy as his regular help; and King Youngy, the gang-banger who can't wait to dance at Wrisberg's wake. The whole house of cards comes tumbling down when crime boss Pete Lemelli orders some pressure brought to bear on Jimmy Duette, a safecracker who's holding out on him, and one of the dirty Chicago cops who's torturing Duette goes a little too far. But what's Sgt. Jake Phillips of Special Victims (Mr. X, 1995, etc.) doing in this kettle along with the other lowlifes? Even while his marriage is crumbling and insatiable magazine writer Dabney Delaney-Hinckle is peeking beneath his sheets, he's taking meetings with bent cops, battling his old buddy Lt. Mondo Mondello, head of Special Victims, over procedures and ethics, and hiding the tape recording he made of Duette's last words--a recording guaranteed to make virtually everybody in the cast rich, dirty, or dead. Wisely cutting himself loose from the Fu Manchu villains who marred his first two books, Gaitano goes the distance in this hydra-headed tale of Chicago's finest. Only the predictable climax is a letdown. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
