Am I my brother's keeper? If I'd known I had a brother, I might have been. But he's dead—shot point-blank in a rat-hole apartment, wasted by hunger and heroin. Stephen Gaines, a man with whom I shared nothing. . . except a father. For some reason this stranger who shared my blood came to me for help. . . and I blew him off thinking he was just some junkie. Now I'm forced to question everything I ever knew. . . and figure out why this man was murdered in cold blood. All I can do for Stephen Gaines now is find his killer—and with the help of Amanda Davies uncover the whole, hard truth. If it means tracking down a vicious drug kingpin—who may or may not exist—then so be it. . . .
