(From the publisher):
made a good, hardworking cop like Rafferty suddenly go wrong? Swanson, who had once been his squad car partner, had one explanation: "I don't think Emmet Rafferty had ever been in love before. And the first time it happens, it can turn a guy inside out..."
Only Rafferty himself could have explained what hit him when he first saw the weary, bleached-blonde stripper who called herself Rose Pauli. But Rafferty wasn't around to talk.
Whatever it was, it shattered him. It changed him from a Detective Sergeant with a pretty good all-around record - into a thief, a frightened cheat, and then a killer who thought he could get away with murder because he knew the ropes of crime.
