Walker's latest case comes by way of ex-mobster Ben Morningstar, who's been living out his retirement in Phoenix while raising Maria, the daughter of a long-ago murdered friend. Only now, Maria is missing and the gangster needs Walker's help. But the trail has gone cold—the only clue is a faded pornographic snapshot.

Never one to give up, Walker witnesses the kidnapping of a former Vietnam friend and solves the murder of a young black labor leader while slugging his way to a solution.
