Summary
"Frank Farrow was a natural-born killer. Roman Otis was a fine-looking crooner who did his killing on the side. On a hot D.C. afternoon, Frank and Roman hit a pizza shop called May's. When the hit was over, four people had been executed. A cop had been shot. A boy was dead. And when the sirens stopped wailing and the killers vanished into the heat, dozens of lives had been shattered forever. Now it's three years later, and Dimitri Karras, who lost his son, is starting to live again. But Dimitri's old acquaintance, a PI named Nick Stefanos, has just unburied the past--by discovering the killers' identities. Suddenly the second act of a crime story is about to be told. Because the May's pizza parlor killers are coming back to town--where they'll be greeted with open arms, broken hearts, and at least one loaded gun."--P. [4] of cover
