While Tess Monaghan gives a workshop at the Baltimore Beacon-Light, her boyfriend Crow is busy making his regular deliveries to the area soup kitchens. He meets a young black teen who offers to change the slashed tire on the car Crow?s been driving. During the course of changing the tire, Crow learns that Lloyd drifts because he no longer feels welcome at home. His mother has a new man in her life who doesn?t accept most of Lloyd?s stories of innocence (no matter what the issue or problem). It?s a brutally cold day out and Crow takes Lloyd to eat the evening meal and then to Crow and Tess' home. Tess isn?t nearly as accepting of the young man as Crow but agrees to let him spend the night. During casual conversation, Tess mentions the death of an assistant US Attorney, Gregory Youssef. Lloyd has a strange reaction to the information. During the early hours of the morning, Lloyd decides to rob Tess and Crow. Instead of stealing a few items and making a getaway in Tess? Lexus, Lloyd is involved in a wreck and runs away on foot. Lloyd?s strange reaction to Youssef?s name bothers Tess and she sets out to find him. Tess? curiosity brings a number of unexpected legal and moral consequences. Crow takes Lloyd out of Baltimore while Tess faces a dangerous threesome from the government. They threaten to take her life apart and do the same with her parents, Crow, his parents, their relatives, etc. By the time they started overturning the rocks in Tess and Crow?s lives, I was boiling mad. If the government can do even a portion of what is outlined in this book, John Q Public is in serious jeopardy. This is a slick story with lots of red herrings. Crow takes a more central position in this book and the reader learns more about Crow?s character. I enjoy the fact that there are returning characters who grow and change, adding a new dimension. 4 Stars
