The Tin CollectorsBook - 2001
"IT TOOK ONE MOMENT TO CHANGE HIS LIFE. It begins with a call in the middle of the night from a woman at the mercy of her abusive husband. It ends with a split-second decision for LAPD detective Shane Scully. But the man Scully brings down is also his ex-partner, a cop with an impeccable reputation. Scully calls it selfdefense. His department calls it murder. And it's touching everyone in his shadow including Chooch, a streetwise teen entrusted to his care, as well as the boy's mother, a prostitute whose high-profile connections and killer secrets have dubbed her the Black Widow. IT WILL TAKE ONE WOMAN TO SAVE IT. It's Internal Affairs prosecutor Alexa Hamilton's job to strip the rank of bad cops. For an ice-queen tin collector with a reputation for destroying careers, Scully's badge is her ultimate prize. But Alexa's investigation has only unearthed the truth about the man Scully killed--his treacherous double life that masked a labyrinth of deadly corruption. Now it's ushering the innocent into a shattering hall of mirrors where everything's suspect, everyone's for sale, and every chance at deliverance may be their last."--Container.
