A fortune in drugs is missing.Finding them starts with finding her.
Colin isn’t a cop. Joe is, but isn’t up for this. Mamadou was an excellent police officer back in Senegal, but in Washington DC he drives a limo. Josie’s just a girl—a recovering crack addict fed up with her parents and with Herbie, her boyfriend. She’s planning on giving him a piece of her mind. Trouble is, Herbie stole a shipment of drugs, and now he’s dead. And let’s not forget Mollie Catfish…
Now the Zulu wants his drugs, Mamadou wants revenge, Joe just wants to do his job for once, and Colin wants to save his girlfriend’s daughter. All Josie wants is to remember what Herbie might have told her, what the Zulu insists she knows. If she doesn’t—she’s dead too.
Mollie? She wants it all.
Behind the polished marble of Washington DC, lies dark alleys where everyone thirsts for something.
“Sagnier builds characters as solid, gritty, and as broken as a DC street, with prose that lights up like monuments on a starry night.” — Michael J. Sullivan, best-selling author of The Riyria Revelations
