Beau has to juggle lots of subplots here that come together in the end--everything from gang warfare to dirty cops to keeping alive a five-year old witness who's the only one who saw the killer. Beau's own emotions swing back and forth in this one, making him more human as we come to know him better. His relationships with Peters and Ames mature in this book, as well.
