Summary
Three years ago, working vice for the NYPD, Dan Champion uncovered a sex slavery ring run by a kingpin known only as the Fat Woman. Obsessed with bringing her down, Champion infiltrated a world of sexual obsession and perversity. He broke the case, but the case also broke him. He started taking drugs and soon began to form hallucinations: a dead child prowling the streets of New York, a beautiful woman named Samantha who would have given him the love he always wanted - if she'd only been real. Now Champion is a small town detective, chasing burglars and juvenile delinquents, hanging out at the local tavern where he is romancing a waitress. The ghosts and hallucinations are finally behind him as he begins to rebuild his life. Then one night Champion is called to examine the body of a woman who has washed ashore. Yet when he looks at her face, he sees that it's Samantha, the woman he dreamed about long ago{u2026} a woman who doesn't exist. Suddenly, Champion is haunted again, only this time it's by a team of expert killers who want to make sure he never finds the truth: the truth about the dead child who wanders through his imagination; the truth about the lover who inhabits his dreams; and the truth about a killer who has been on the run - in the wind - for a lifetime. The ghosts of the dead are all around him, and Champion has to find out who murdered them, fast, or he could become one of them himself

Summary
For the past three years, after a devastating assignment caused his withdrawal from the NYPD's undercover vice division, Dan Champion's been working as a detective in a small New York town. But the traumatizing case hasn't left him -- he dreams of one of the dead child victims and a beautiful redheaded woman, who soon shows up in his town, near death, with a warning for him. As readers we're unsure of what is real and what is delusion, but Champion's need to track down the people associated with the earlier case and his own repressed memories combine to create a hero to root for and a story you won't soon forget. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
