Relentless pursuit : a true story of family, murder, and the prosecutor who wouldn't quit by Kevin Flynn

This is the story of a real-life murder and the detective who never gave up in his quest for justice for the victims. He visited their graves and promised that he would do everything in his power to find out who had killed them and make them pay for it.
The story is set in an underprivileged area of Washington DC and as it unfolds the horror of what happened to the mother and daughter traumatises both the police and the local community.
It is also a moving story about a grieving family who react in such a way that they not only helped Detective Flynn in the investigation, but also in coping with his own personal tragedy.

He was inspired by their generosity of spirit towards him and his colleagues.
A glimpse into the world of police and what they are dealing with in solving a murder, and also into how this particular community reacted.
