Former NYPD detective Lou Drake and his wife, Robin, are moving to San Diego, California to escape the freezing New York winters. A high-rise luxury condo that overlooks San Diego harbor is just the ticket. But when Robin is called away to help comfort her ailing sister, Lou finds himself in trouble again. With his friend, SDPD detective Patrick Hagan, as they are drawn into a conspiracy-laden mystery that starts with a corpse and leads to an old savings & loan scandal. Ragged Justice spins a web of deceit that goes deep into city politics, money redevelopment, power and the future of America’s Finest City.
