However, Bradshaw is captivated by a crime closer to home: the peddler’s child may have witnessed a murder. He follows the girl’s trail, plunging into a seedy underworld of bars and brothels. Frustrated by the police department’s apathy and caught between power struggles, he doesn’t know whom to trust. Each step of his investigation entangles him deeper in crime and corruption until he realizes that to save the child, he must transform his contest entry into a trap to catch a killer. Bradshaw’s electrical forensic and investigative skills, combined with a keen understanding of human nature, bring the Seattle police—and murder—to his doorstep during the social and scientific turmoil of the early twentieth century.
