Once the prosecutor was a young law student. Once the dead man was an honest lawyer. Now Stella Marz stares at the body of her former lover, hanging from a doorway in a gruesome tableau.

For Stella Marz, the search for Jack Novak's killer leads into another bizarre homicide case, back through her own past and through the city where she was born and where now--a good Catholic girl turned career woman--she is in crisis. Somewhere in this city a hidden alliance of big money, big plans, and dark secrets is fueling a great American revival. And somehow Stella Marz will bring the darkness into the light--no matter what it reveals, no matter who it destroys. . . .

This is my 3rd Patterson book and each one has been very good - complex characters, intricate plots and much mystery. Here, a female county prosecutor has to unravel the deaths of 2 men involved in a municipal revitalization, one of whom was her lover 15 years ago. Their deaths are bizarre and seem to make no sense until she looks into the connections with the mob and how they interact.
Patterson takes the time to develope his characters into life like people whom the reader can believe in.
