Summary (From the publisher):

The image of Livingston, California, stuck in Donnally's mind like a moth on flypaper. In the late eighties, as a young officer working the SFPD fugutive detail, he'd driven down the heart of the state through fog yellowed by agricultural burning, breathing in smoke and diesel fumes, hunting for a wino who stabbed a postal worker in a skid-row hotel lobey. In morbid irony, the killer who'd been drunk on the fortified wine marketed to alcoholics that had made Gallo brothers rich, had sought refuge at the Gallo labor camp.

For years, Donnally's memory of Livingston had been anchored in a single image: welking into the shed, finding the killer handing from a rafter, his neck snapped, his dead body still rocking above an overturned crate. And by a single thought: that the last thoughts the man had heard were Donnally's footsteps on the wooden porch and the squeak of the turning doorknob.

Now that memory had broken free and all Donnally saw when he imagined that place was a little girl molested by her father...a young Mauricio Quintero...and a gunshot.
