Summary

When the body of a tramp was found in a dumpster on Lafayette and Bryant in the Bronx, with no papers and no ID, the case was filed as unsolved - another victim nobody cared about, shot by some punk nobody cared about.

That was 12 years ago.

Then Detective Stone notices that the "tramp" had a 100 dollar haircut and manicured nails. That makes him curious. He wants to know, who dresses a murder victim up as a tramp, then leaves them in full view in a dumpster? But the answers he gets are not the ones he expects, and before long their investigation leads Stone and Dehan to St Mary's Roman Catholic Church, and the darkest recesses of the human soul.

It also leads them to some of the most powerful men in New York. Some, like Conor Hagan, head of the Irish Mob, are known criminals. But others are not...Stone's problem is deciding which of them are just criminals, and which are truly evil. That is, until ghosts start appearing from Dehan's past. Then things get complicated....

Excellent murder mystery - narration is just right!

Unlike with quite a few audiobooks, the narration is just perfect for this story. The dialogue between Stone and Dehan is just a joy and it is only enhanced by Steve Carlson's narration. Onward to the next book in the series.
