A quiet neighborhood is torn from its peaceful sleep by a shocking and brutal late night drive-by shooting. An innocent teenage sleepover takes a tragic turn as a hail of bullets rip into the front of a house.
Philadelphia Detective Kyle Simmons is assigned one task: Catch the killer before someone else takes matters into their own hands.
Then something strange happens: A long forgotten contact of the detective has been killed. The evidence is crystal clear that this was a cold and calculated hit.
But as Simmons works both cases, a disturbing thought keeps popping up in his head: What if the two cases are somehow connected?
Detective Simmons races against the clock to quickly find the proof to solve both cases before all hell breaks loose. E.G. Michaels delivers a debut action-packed thriller with white-knuckle twists, unexpected humor, and leaves you wanting even more.
