Famed N.Y.P.D. detective tracks down the pedophile priest who caused his daughter's suicide. The trail takes him to the gates of the Vatican and beyond with his own life imperiled in the process.

Irish born, Bronx bred, Dax McGowan, decorated Detective Lieutenant of

the N.Y.P.D. suffers the loss of his daughter by suicide as a result of her

sexual abuse by a pedophile priest. An intransigent Catholic Hierarchy, 

a politically fearful response by the D.A.'s office, and his own conscience

pile up against him as he seeks to exact justice for his darling, Grace.

Aided by a "take no prisoners" S.V.U. detective, the President of an

international sex abuse survivors organization, and a surprising mentor,

Dax attempts to devise a series of clever entrapments in order to pierce

the golden veil of secrecy that has always successfully protected the

most powerful of all religious institutions. 




Excerpt

He could hear them now inches below him checking for any sign of his presence. He was struggling to breathe very shallowly. He wondered if his heart pounding in his ears was audible to his attackers. He knew the slightest sound would mean shots fired into the bottom of the platform draining his body of all its blood onto the basement floor. He concentrated on not blinking, concerned that the one additional sound, though minute, might make the difference and cause his discovery. He pictured the stoic and motionless stare of an extremely pensive Sherlock Holmes as his model of silence. It worked.
