POUND OF FLESH
Eight years ago, Ben Harvey was accused and convicted of raping Laura Shay, a high school classmate. Now DNA tests prove he is innocent, and suddenly Harvey is free. Like the rest of Chicago, police detective Jeremy Ransom is intrigued--but relieved he's far removed from this tragedy of injustice. Then Laura Shay is murdered, and it's on Ransom's beat.
The obvious suspect is Harvey. After all, who could blame the man for wanting revenge? Not even Ransom's friend, confidante and unofficial partner, septuagenarian Emily Charters. Ransom is drawn to this case with all the passion of a lawman that true justice be served. But, as he discovers, the fine line of justice can be razor sharp ... and deadly.
