When a murder victim is found on the number 2 subway train with an ice pick stuck in her heart, the Runyonesque, slightly irreverent, NYPD Detective Stanislaus Jakubowski (JAKE), is called in to his Manhattan’s 10th precinct to investigate.

Jake knows this victim from his previous investigation into the murder of Pete Cisneros, his retired partner. The victim is Dr. Jane McMillan, a cardiopulmonary surgeon at King’s County Hospital, but more than that, she was the lover of Pete’s daughter, Margarita. The victim’s live-in lover, also a nurse at the hospital, is, of course, among the prime suspects.

The complicated clues Jake encounters lead him to many other suspects with intriguing stories of their own, from doctors, to a drug pushing teenager, a cowboy, and a stable hand. Amongst the numerous captivating characters are Jake’s pregnant, girlfriend, a Brooklyn Sergeant, his new partner, a DNA expert, and his best friend.

Through his eyes, ears, thoughts and voice, Jake suspects everyone as he struggles to keep the upper hand and unravel this colorful tapestry to a surprise ending.
