In this fourth installment of the Jake Hines series, light deprivation has already got Jake and his whole crew of detectives on edge. Then two crisis calls come into the station at once. A child has been critically injured in the yard of his house, and something approaching the proportions of an old-fashioned gang fight has broken out in the parking lot of Central High.

As the department mobilizes to deal with these two events, Jake is told that the little boy is dead and that the emergency room doctor attributes the death to a gunshot wound. The witnesses all state, however, that there was no gun at the scene, and no one heard a shot. To complicate matters, one of the ringleaders in the school brawl was the chief’s son and the first boy he hit has gone to the hospital.

Tracking its trajectory leads Jake to a supposedly locked shed—except that a couple of kids have broken in and left shell casings that match the ones used in several random dog killings, and now in Billy’s death.

Reviewing the Evidence

That stretch is exactly how it felt to me about ensuring the "walleye", the pike, of the title was included.Ý Verdict: fans of police procedurals will enjoy this book.
