When the Night Bird Sings
Shortly after solving the horrific Mutilator serial killer case, Thomas Mecana and Darcie Connors are on the trail of a new suspect.
On opening day of their new private investigation firm, the two detectives meet one Candy Kane - an affluent Texas socialite who offers them a small fortune in exchange for protection.
It seems a former patient of her psychotherapist husband has been trying to settle old scores by threatening Mrs. Kane's life.
And he's not the only one out for vengeance.
Mecana's growing suspect list forces him to decide who is friend and who is foe.
Unfortunately, each action leaves him and his partner sitting in the crosshairs of those wanting to claim the Kane fortune.
One wrong move could mean the end.
