Why would anyone want to kill a jogger? Better than that, why would anyone want to kill three joggers? The jogging directly behind the Philadelphia Art Museum is scenic, bucolic, and fairly quiet in the early morning. For Lieutenant RC Frane and Sergeant Greta Rogers it is the place where shooters do bad things to joggers. That’s just the beginning. Tracking the killer(s) is complicated because there seems to be no motive. What emerges is a complex array of leads and misleads: Fish companies intent on capturing the seafood market, smuggling art and valuables, and worst of all, someone simply looking for excitement. For the two homicide detectives it is a test of their imagination and skill. Oh, they also have to confront the father and wife of one of the victims. It seems they meet regularly at a local hotel, to talk. Along with the help of ADA Chris DeLeon and philosophical restaurateur Leonides Andros, they work through a many-sided set of murders, which increasingly becomes more than they counted on as the bodies multiply.
