Jimmy Vega, a police officer in a relatively wealthy neighborhood fifty miles from New York City, was patrolling one night when he got a call about shots fired in a home invasion. When the suspect acts like he is reaching for a gun, Vega shoots, killing him. The nightmare is just beginning for Vega as the shooting has implications for his girlfriend, a prominent Hispanic activist, and his teenage daughter. In trying to clear his name certain people from his old neighborhood remind him of his mother’s suspicious death and the links to the man he killed. Vega tries to untangle the web of people who might be involved. Great story. Would like to read more of the Jimmy Vega Mystery series.
