The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up where it doesn't belongG''and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silentG''he knows he's in over his head.-'With only a handful of clues, Quinn scrambles for cover, struggling to find out why someone wants him dead . . . and if it's linked to a larger attempt to wipe out the Office.
