Brooklyn native John Testarossa went through the emotional ringer en route to his current home on the West Coast. Now an LAPD homicide detective, he thinks he's seen it all. Then a human arm washes in with the Santa Monica breakers, followed by the body of the arm's former owner. The resulting investigation takes the redheaded, hard-boiled, second-generation cop and his partner, Alex Ortiz, into the world of college athletics-and illegal doping. The lethal repercussions of their investigation set Testarossa on a vengeful path, and the love of his life-the stunning and steadfast Dr. Karen Gennaro-may not be able to hold him back from the brink. The sins of the past reverberate into the present in Julie Vail's thriller, A Deadly Legacy.
