Brooklyn native John Testarossa has been knocked around on ad off the job 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 lethal repercussions of his investigation sets Testarossa on a vengeful path, and there may not be anyone able to hold him back from the brink. The sins of the past reverberate into the present in Julie Vail's pulse-pounding thriller, A Deadly Legacy.
Julie Vail has published several books of poetry. A Deadly Legacy is her first novel. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
