The city is plagued by a heroin epidemic and women are disappearing without a trace. Everyone knows the Brotherhood Syndicate is behind it, but they never leave any blatant evidence.
Undercover cop Peter Lazarus is tasked to find the smoking gun to cripple them. He's on the verge of success when his two worlds collide and threaten the entire mission when his estranged wife appears and is working with them -- a wife the Brotherhood will gladly use against him, if they learn the truth.
Now, this case is no longer just an assignment. He's fighting against time and for family. This investigation will test everything he's worked for and what he's made of. The consequences for failing could be dire. He could lose more than his badge, but also his very life.
This story is a part of the Spark before Dying series and is set in that story world.
