The Story

San Antonio private investigator Tres Navarre is used to working on the edge—that razor-sharp line between legal and life sentence. But this time he’s stepped straight into no-man’s land. When an old friend appears at his door, spattered with blood and wanted for attempted homicide, Tres doesn’t have to think twice about where his loyalty lies—or the consequences.

Ralph Arguello is a criminal who put the street life behind him when he married SAPD detective Ana DeLeon. Now Ana’s been gunned down and her fellow cops don’t need to look far to find a prime suspect. For Ana recently re-opened the most infamous cold case in SAPD history — the unsolved murder of a mobster’s son on notorious Mission Road eighteen years before, which threw the San Antonio underworld into bloody chaos. And Ana was about to bring charges against the suspected killer: her husband, Ralph Arguello.

Tres is sure that Ralph didn’t do it—and that he didn’t shoot his wife. But with the police and the mafia both out for revenge, there’s no one to turn to for help. Now, armed and dangerous, the targets of a city-wide manhunt, Tres and Ralph have just hours to find out what really happened on Mission Road almost two decades ago. They set a collision course with the past, and a secret which will tears their lives apart.
