"The novel opens with Mulheisen's aged mother nearly slain by an incomprehensible bombing at an orderly environmental protest. Mulheisen resigns from the force to nurse her, but as she recovers he turns his implacable attention to the bombers. The task force can't decide if it's anti-environmentalists, international terrorist group making its hideous point, or a drug cartel's attempt to quiet a witness or spring him. Mulheisen quickly questions what the Feds haven't: what about gun-happy "Imp" Luck? Was he the strange man who warned Ma Mulheisen to leave the courthouse just before the bombing occurred? All the situation needs is the volatile presence of Joe Service, sometime hatchet man for an elite group of federal agents acting above the law who call themselves the Lucani. Joe has just been tossed into the devil's cauldron by the Lucani's devious Colonel Tucker, just as an old mob contact warns him that someone he thought he'd killed is still alive - and kicking."--BOOK JACKET
