Summary (From the publisher):

Serial killer Elroy "Animal" Doil is hours away from the electric chair. In his last hours of life, he wants to make a confession -- to Detective Malcolm Ainslie, the man who put him away. And as much as he'd like to, Ainslie can't ignore the criminal's request. Because although Doil is guilty of a gruesome double murder, his confession could close ten other unsolved slayings.

What Ainslie learns, however, will thrust him into an investigation that leads directly to elite levels of city government -- and some of his trusted colleagues...
