For more than eight years, Harry Starke was a senior homicide detective with the Chattanooga PD. He was good at his job, better than good, but then he caught the Cassie Morgan case.
Cassie died at the hands of a sadistic killer and he knew from the beginning that it was going to be a bad one, and he was right. Too many clues, too many suspects, too many bodies and a police chief more interested in his career than justice for the victims. For Harry, it was the last straw, and it had been a long time coming. He cleared the case, handed in his notice and walked out the door. He spent the next several weeks thinking, drinking and playing poker . . .
. . . Until one dark and rainy night when he was on his way to a game, and he picked up a bedraggled young woman. And so it began.
These are Harry Starke’s stories, his toughest cases.
