A botched liquor store heist leaves three grisly dead. A hero cop is missing. Nobody could see a pattern in these two stray bits of information-no one except Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins, a brilliant and disturbed L.A. cop with an obsessive desire to protect the innocent. To him they lead to one horrifying conclusion--a killer is on the loose and preying on his city. From the master of L.A. noir comes this beautiful and brutal tale of a cop and a criminal squared off in a life and death struggle.

New York Times–bestselling author: An LAPD undercover cop goes missing in this crime novel by "one of the great American writers of our time" (Los Angeles Times).

There was never a better cop than Jungle Jack Herzog. A wiry man whose strength exceeded his frame, his ability to navigate the darkest corners of the City of Angels drew him repeated citations for bravery. Nicknamed the Alchemist for his uncanny ability to fake new identities, he did his best work as an undercover agent in the vice squad, disappearing into the underworld in the name of justice. Now he has disappeared for good.

It's a bad sign that Lloyd Hopkins catches Jungle Jack's case, because Hopkins works homicide. As he attempts to discover what happened to the missing cop, he investigates a strange murder committed with a revolver that predates the Civil War. There is a horrifying secret behind the cop's disappearance, but Lloyd Hopkins does not fear the truth.
