Description

BY DAVID BENJAMIN

Josie Dobbs, sweet sixteen and beautiful, is everybody’s angel. Or is she?
Police chief Jim Otis, fired from the Chicago Police after an affair with an underage hooker, is a lost cause. Or is he?
Josie has secrets nobody in little Hercules, Wisconsin, wants to uncover. Nobody but Jim Otis.
In his last month on the job, the lame-duck chief must unravel the dark side of Josie Dobbs, or a young Marine could go to jail — and innocent people might die. Otis wades into a swamp of sordid trysts and local gossip-mongers, sorting lies from truth from rumors in a dogged pursuit to find out what really happened one cold night in November at the Hercules Hardware.
