In this powerful novel from award-winning author Suzanne Chazin, a tense stand-off between a Hispanic police detective and an undocumented immigrant leads to the shooting death of one, the shattered life of the other, and the shocking connection between them. Detective Vega’s need for answers propels him back to his old Bronx neighborhood, a raw, menacing place where he is viewed as a disgraced cop, not a homegrown hero. It also puts him at odds with his girlfriend, Adele Figueroa, head of a local immigrant center, who must weigh her own doubts about his behavior. When a shocking piece of evidence surfaces, it becomes clear that someone doesn’t want Vega to put all the pieces together—and is willing to do whatever it takes to bury the truth. Only by risking everything will Vega be able to find justice, redemption, and the most elusive goal of all: the ability to forgive himself.
