A suburban housewife is found shot to death in an alley in one of Detroit’s roughest neighborhoods. After the rumors and theories evaporate, Sylvia Wilcox, a retired police officer turned private detective, takes on the case. With virtually no leads to follow, Sylvia works to recreate the circumstances that led to Liza Stark’s murder. She immediately discovers that the Liza friends and family describe, is much different from the Liza her research reveals. As Sylvia works diligently to follow up on any and all leads, she is continuously met with roadblocks thrown up by Liza’s loved ones.
While members of some of Metro Detroit’s most prominent families work hard to protect their good names, Sylvia dives deeper into a world of secrets and lies. Before Sylvia can identify suspects, she must first find out who Liza was. The investigation takes the PI through elite neighborhoods and gang territory, before revealing the inner-workings of a secret organization.
