Divorced and working as a courtesy van driver for the run-down hotel in which he has a room, Gus Murphy has settled into a mindless, soulless routine that barely keeps his grief at arm's length. But his comfortable waking trance comes to an end when ex-con Tommy Delcamino comes to him for help. Four months earlier, TJ Delcamino's battered body was discovered in a wooded lot, yet the Suffolk County PD doesn't seem interested in pursuing the killers. In desperation, Tommy seeks out the only cop he ever trusted: Gus Murphy. As Gus begins to sweep away the layers of dust that have collected over the case during the intervening months, he finds that Delcamino is telling the truth. It seems that everyone involved with the late TJ Delcamino--from his best friend to his girlfriend, from a gang enforcer to a mafia capo, and even the police--has something to hide, and all are willing to go to extreme lengths to hide it. Gus has taken on a dangerous favour as he claws his way back to take a place among the living, all while searching through the sewers for a killer. Followed by "What you break". 2016.
