About this book: When the body of an ambitious congressman's mistress is found dumped in the mayor's well, Assistant DA Alex Cooper is distraught that she wasn't able to prevent the death in time. A series of frantic phone calls for help had preceded the murder, but each time the police responded, the woman had denied making any contact at all. Investigating the shady circumstances, Alex uncovers not only a sordid secret affair but also an illegitimate child, supposedly fathered by the politician.

The high-profile case shocks New York society but pales against news of a tragic shipwreck off the coast, claiming the lives of the human cargo on board. Desperate to get to safety, the illegal immigrants crammed in the hold try to make for the shore, only to be swept under by the dangerous riptides.

Called to the gruesome scene, Alex discovers a strange connection between the seemingly unrelated cases: a young woman who drowned in the wreck and the congressman's murdered lover share the same tattoo, an image that seems to be the brand of the mastermind behind the trafficking operation. Carefully picking apart the fragile link between the two victims, Alex finds much more than she bargained for: a dark link to New Yorks' powerful elite that will call into question all she ever believed in...
