Powerful addictions are measured in lives lost.
Dry Creek Patrol Officer Alex Landon is about to be promoted to Narcotics Detective. With only a few weekend graveyard shifts left in his Patrol tenure, he learns DCPD’s narcotics unit and the DEA believe the source of a high-grade methamphetamine is operating in Dry Creek.
Alex has already seen how the cost of powerful addictions are measured in lives lost: victims addicted and overdosed, conspirators and rivals killed, informants murdered.
When Alex and his mentor, Javier Ramirez, are tasked with helping track down the meth source, they go about the nasty business of wading through society’s gutters. Few lives in that underworld survive the mere perception of betrayal or weakness, and Alex fears their time is running out to prevent a new wave of death and despair from spreading across central Arizona.
