When Connor wore a badge, he drove a Crown Vic down Oakland's meanest streets. Now he pilots a vintage Alfa Romeo and finds classic cars for rich collectors. Inevitably, he also finds trouble. It starts when Evie, an old flame, asks him to learn the truth about her daughter, who was found with her wrists slashed during Monterey's classic car weekend. The inquest said it was suicide, but Evie thinks it was murder. Unable to refuse the woman he loved and lost twenty years ago, Connor agrees to investigate. With some old-school detective work and his ex-partner's help, he discovers that Evie may be right. She also may be hiding something. And as his investigation proceeds, he finds himself caught between deception and desire.
