The death of internal affairs investigator Andy Paxton is a potential political bomb for the Minneapolis Police Department. Andy Paxton was gay, and he was investigating a possible cop connection in the brutal murder of another gay officer. But Andy's death looks like suicide - or an unfortunate and embarrassing accident: death by auto-erotic misadventure - and the pressure is on from the top brass to close the case as soon as possible. But Andy Paxton's ex-lover doesn't believe Andy died by his own hand - accidentally or otherwise. He believes Andy's death is tied to his work, and he presses lead detective Sam Kovac to find another answer - one that won't be popular with anyone.
With the help of Amanda Millard, Paxton's supervisor, Kovac begins to investigate the cases that Andy was working on and the deeper he digs, the more suspicious he becomes. And Andy might not be the final victim . . . As Kovac and his partner, Tinks Liska, peel back the layers of this complex case, they will find their careers and their lives on the line, because someone wants the truth left dead and buried. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
