Cold Water by Tom Pitts


After a miscarriage, a young couple move from San Francisco to the Sacramento suburbs to restart their lives. When the vacant house across the street is taken over by who they think are squatters, they’re pulled into a battle neither of them bargained for. The gang of unruly drug addicts who’ve infested their block have a dark and secret history that reaches beyond their neighborhood and all the way to the most powerful and wealthy men in California.

L.A. fixer, Calper Dennings, is sent by a private party to quell the trouble before it affects his employer, but before he can finish the job, he too is pulled into the violent dark world of a man with endless resources to destroy anyone around him.
