How do you solve a murder nobody wants solved and catch a killer nobody wants caught?

When a woman with explosive secrets is murdered, City Hall orders a cover up. But fired TV reporter Reno McCarthy has never been politically correct. Reno's out for justice and he won't back off-even if it means a showdown with a brutal manipulator intent on turning Chicago into a branch office of the Russian mob.

Reno's city is on the verge of a 21st Century mob war; one that will make the Roaring Twenties seem like a cap gun fight.

It's summer in Chicago. It's supposed to be cooler by the lake.

Not this summer.

" complex, fast-paced snappy." -Barbara D'Amato, past President, Mystery Writers of America

"Crisp, street-wise dialogue. Cummings pulls no punches." -John Drummond, author of Thirty Years in the Trenches: Covering Crooks, Characters and Capers

" a crime spree all by itself. It has politics, sleaze and sleazy politics. It's peopled by cops, hookers, gangsters and even nastier types like radio hosts and senators. And Doug Cummings knows the territory." -Sam Reaves, author of Dooley's Back
