New York Times bestselling author.

Leaving L.A's Parker Center, Shane Scully and his wife Alexa agree to meet at home in one hour. Shane gets there at the appointed time; Alexa doesn't. And when Shane is called to a crime scene on Mulholland Drive, he finds the body of the victim, killed execution-style, in Alexa's car - and her gun is found nearby. But Alexa herself is missing. Shane is no stranger to trouble, but this investigation takes him into a world he's never encountered, where he meets his match in a media-savvy enemy who will stop at nothing to forge his own empire.

In the follow-up to Cold Hit, Detective Shane Scully goes up against the beautiful, blonde wife of a powerful hip-hop mogul who stands at the center of a ruthless conspiracy.

Emmy Award-winning writer Stephen J. Cannell has created over forty TV series, including The Rockford Files, Silk Stalkings, The A-Team and many more. His Shane Scully books have been making regular appearances on the New York Times bestseller list.
