When the body of a hooker is discovered in a crackhouse,
New Orleans prosecutor Ryan Murphy refuses to let the
case languish into yet another unsolved homicide. She has
a connection to the victim and won’t back down until the
murder is solved, even if it means insinuating herself into the
investigation. And if she hides her involvement from her
detective boyfriend, it’s only because he’s busy working late
nights on a secret case of his own.
When Ryan isn’t hounding the homicide detective for
information or investigating the murder behind his back,
she’s juggling her Strike Force cases, including a four-victim
mob hit, a nasty domestic violence assault, and the armed
robbery of a strip club.
At first, Ryan’s only concern is getting justice for her victims.
By the time the weekend ends, she’ll settle for staying alive.
Set against the backdrop of pre-Katrina New Orleans,
