From the Publisher:
Raymond “Strong” Carlisle made his mark as an ace sideman to the biggest names in R&B. Now he lies in the mud outside his home, shot dead from behind. He’s the first official casualty in a dirty war for control of Rio Mirada: a low-rent “city in transition” at the northernmost point of the San Francisco Bay, beset by drug dealers, arsonists, squatters, and restless developers. And now a murderer.

In Rio Mirada, the truth is in short supply. What’s plentiful are people with all the reasons in the world to make sure the murder of Strong Carlisle remains unsolved. And the harder Detective Dennis Murchison pushes for answers, the clearer it becomes that this single, brutal homicide is just the tip of an iceberg in a town where small-time crime and big-time corruption are about to collide with explosive consequences.Detective Dennis Murchison investigates the two prime suspects in the murder of a legendary blues musician--a young thug in the employ of a local drug lord and the musician's son--unaware that the real killlers have become involved in a deadly real-estate development scheme, one that includes a huge fire to clear the way for a lucrative construction project.

The murder of an alcoholic jazz musician in a rundown California city begins a long and complicated investigation in which three different cops, working largely independently, turn up all kinds of leads going in all different directions, none of which seem to end in a solution.
