Private investigator Nils Shapiro is hired to investigate the brutal murder of Todd Rabinowitz, and soon it seems everyone connected to the prominent lawyer wants Nils to protect them from suspicion. The unfaithful widow. Her artist boyfriend. The lawyer’s firm. A polarizing congressional candidate. A rudderless suburban police department. Even the FBI.

As Nils personal life takes its own unexpected turn, he and his partners unravel a web of deceit that draws national attention. Someone doesn’t want them to discover what dark secrets Todd was keeping, and they won’t stop until they silence Nils as well.
