For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too tangible when her boyfriend brings home a young street kid who doesn`t even realize he holds an important key to the man s death. Tess agrees to protect the boy s identity no matter what, especially when one of his friends is killed in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity. But with federal agents determined to learn the boy s name at any cost, Tess finds out just how far even official authorities will go to get what they want. Soon she s facing felony charges and her boyfriend, Crow, has gone into hiding with his young protИgИ, so Tess can t deliver the kid to investigators even if she wants to. Time and time again Tess is reminded of her father s old joke, the one about the most terrifying sentence in the English language: We`re from the government and we`re here to help.
