In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz's death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer's notoriety and his taste for illicit midday trysts make the case front-page news in every local paper except the "Star," which crashed and burned before Abramowitz did. A former Star reporter who knows every inch of this town from historic Fort McHenry to the crumbling projects of Cherry Hill now unemployed journalist Tess Monaghan also knows the guy the cops like for the killing: cuckolded fiance Darryl Rock Paxton. The time is ripe for a career move anything to pay the rent so when rowing buddy Rock wants to hire her to do some unorthodox snooping to help clear his name, Tess agrees. But there are lethal secrets hiding in the Charm City shadows, and Tess own name could end up on that ever-expanding list of Baltimore dead.
