When the choir director at a local church is bludgeoned, shot, and set afire in the mayor’s neighborhood, Detective R.J. Franklin is pulled in to investigate. But nothing is as it seems on this case. Not even the victim is who he claimed to be.  With very little information to go on, R.J. sets out to catch a killer.  With a lot of help from his colorful godmother, Mama B, his partner and a new love interest, R.J. has to follow the trail and solve the murder before the murderer kills again.
