The past is never past on the mean streets of Phoenix. Half a century after the unsolved murder of an FBI agent, the missing badge is found on the body of a dead transient. The case seems a perfect fit for David Mapstone, history professor turned Maricopa County deputy sheriff. That is, if he can get past a forced partnership with rival cold-case expert Sgt. Kate Vare and the FBIs strange stonewalling about the details of the agents killing. Davids wife, Lindsey, star of the sheriffs Cybercrimes Bureau, was on the task force that busted the case wide open. But her triumph is short-lived when a hit in Scottsdale leaves three task-force members dead. Lindseys life in danger, Sheriff Peralta stashes Lindsey and David in a safe house. Can David solve the case?
