Nightmares of the man he killed two years ago still chase Rick Cahill through his sleep. The memory of his murdered wife haunts him during waking hours. His private investigative work, secretly photographing adulterers, paid for his new house but stains his soul.
When an old nemesis asks for his help to free a man from prison, a man he thinks is wrongly convicted of murder, Rick grabs at the chance to turn his life around. His investigation takes him from the wealthy enclave of La Jolla to the dark underbelly of San Diego. His quest fractures his friendship with his mentor, endangers his steady job, and draws the ire of the police chief who had tried to put Rick behind bars forever. With the police on one side of the law and a vicious biker gang on the other, all trying to stop him from freeing the man in prison, Rick risks his life to uncover the truth that only the real killer knows - what happened one bloody night eight years earlier.

A great main character in a brilliant novel
I loved the character and back story around our main character. There's plenty of scrapes that he gets himself into throughout the book and he handles it with the cynical point of view that his troubles in life (and previous books) have caused him. Fractured and flawed but even more likeable for it.
I was gripped from the start. It has a good pace to it that builds up well and delivers a very good ending. There's no dull or slow moments, it's a solid crime thriller.
I really liked the narration. It was good for the main character and the narrators voice is a good fit and feel for Rick which really got me into the story.
I liked the way that the character was turning his haunted past, an unfortunate killing, which gives us the title of the book into something positive or at least it solving a crime
