Synopsis (from the publisher): When college pitching phenom Ty Wallace is accused of murdering his prospective agent's secretary, the ballplayer's father enlists Ronan Marino to clear his son and uncover the real killer. Working the hardcrabble streets of Lowell and the upscale Boston Back Bay neighborhood, Ronan uncovers a series of clues leading him right into a web of blackmail, gambling and sex; a conspiracy seemingly directed by his boyhood idol, a former Red Sox player and his partner in crime, a renegade gangster aiming to wrestle control of the Boston family from Ronan's uncle.
Meanwhile, Ronan struggles with problems of his own including a teetering relationship with his doctor girlfriend, who is not appreciative of the risks he takes in his chosen profession and his family ties. Complicating matters is his attraction to the new chief of police at the university, who Ronan sees as not only his female mirror image but a potentially perfect crime fighting and romantic match. With his mobster cousin Tony and Lowell Police detective Eddie Garcia providing backup, "the best that money can't buy" once again finds himself caught between the light and darkness; desperate to solve the murder and figure out why his personal life continues to be such a mess.
