Tango DownBook - 2017
"A routine visit to one of Sam Acquillós job sites becomes anything but. The homés owner, Victor Bollings, is lying in a pool of blood, the back of his head bashed in. One of Sams closest friends in the cabinetry trade is quickly behind bars as the obvious suspect. For the cops, this is all standard operating procedure. But as it turns out, nothing about the case is routine, obvious or standard in any way. Sam and defense attorney Jackie Swaitkowski are used to an uneasy, though often reciprocal, relationship with law enforcement. But when the chief of police tells Sam to stay the hell away, this time he really means it. For Sam and Jackie, words like this are highly motivational, until strange new forces emerge from the shadows. Forces from well beyond the borders of Southampton, from worlds as sinister as they are unfathomable. That doesnt mean Sam and Jackie still dont have a job to do. And a responsibility to defend the utterly defenseless: a Colombian immigrant with no legal status, no political power and no alibi, with the full weight of the judicial system - local, state, national and international - arrayed against him."--Provided by publisher.
