Publisher’s description: “The gruesome murders of four women force San Francisco police inspector Tom McGuire to confront a past he desperately wants to forget. As a former prisoner of war in the famed Hanoi Hilton, McGuire discovers that the murder of four anti-war women activists was an act of revenge 25 years removed. McGuire and the beautiful witness to one of the crimes come to realize that the murderer has not yet finished his grisly work. In a race against time, McGuire is caught in a dilemma between his sworn duty as a police officer and his belief in the military oath he took so long ago—and finds himself drawn into a political quagmire from which no one can emerge a winner.”
