Homicide Sergeant Matthew Payne is used to murder, but lately there's been an awful lot of it in Philadelphia. A gangland shooting in a popular tourist location has left six dead, most of them innocent bystanders, and days later the body of a headless Latina turns up in the Schuykill River. Everybody assumes they're not related, but Payne can't shake the hunch that there's something more to it - and that hunch leads him far from the City of Brotherly Love to the Texas-Mexico border. There, he finds a world where the lines of law and order are murkier than he ever imagined possible, and the daily question is " O Plato o Plomo?" Silver or lead. Cash or death. Which will Matt Payne take? Or will he just go home, glad to be alive . . .
