LAPD Robbery-Homicide Detective Hayden Glass has always had trouble controlling his urges. No longer trolling the streets looking for working girls, he has a new obsession--the Internet. Infatuated with a woman he finds on a website, Hayden Glass's sex addiction drags him to San Francisco and into a web of corruption and crime. Glass's search for this woman leads him to a massive sex slave trade, run by the Russian mafia and protected by a group of powerful and corrupt San Francisco cops. Glass gets co-opted by the FBI to aid in their investigation...but his presence is doing much more harm than good.

Review quote

"Just as I thought there wasn't an original take left on the detective novel, along comes Stephen Jay Schwartz and "Beat.""-- Michael Connelly, "New York Times "bestselling author of the Harry Bosch novels "Stephen Jay Schwartz writes with a paintbrush and expertly guides us through the gates of hell into a world where sex and violence merge into a toxic yet highly addictive alternative reality. Hayden Glass is a character we've not seen before, with fiendish impulses and a desperate desire to overcome his past. This is one of the most darkly sexual books I've ever read and I devoured it in one suspenseful sitting."--Katie Arnoldi, "Los Angeles Times "bestselling author of "Point Dume"
