It was a Thursday late in April. In Manhattan, New York, the night was mild and balmy with a clear sky above her.
The moon was full, and Detective Elisa Maza, NYPD, had a lot on her mind as she drove home that night in her red 1957 Ford Fairlane convertible.
She'd just come off investigating a murder in the uptown financial district.
It was obvious the victim had been a money launderer, obvious to her at least that he'd also been working for Tony Dracon, a local mob boss who thought he was above the law.
Trouble was, so far anyway, he was right about that. Unless she got very lucky, there was no way she'd be able to tie him to this, if he was even the one who called for the hit.
For all she knew right now, Dracon might not have been her victim's only client, or it could even have been a rival of Dracon's trying to cripple his cash flow (if so,
then there would probably be more crime scenes like this popping up before the week was out).
