Audible Editor Reviews

Derringer and Agatha Award nominee Elizabeth Zelvin’s second mystery featuring freelance detective and recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler has him careening from uptown to downtown Manhattan, and out and back from Brooklyn. He is set in motion at the behest of friends, computer genius Jimmy, and Barbara, a resplendent co-dependent with an Al-Anon sponsee accused of murdering her abusive ex-boyfriend. Mark Boyett (veteran of regional stage productions and a Fringe First Award winner at the Edinburgh Festival) brings a gritty, sardonic tone to the action-packed, noir-ish rhapsody of a detective trying to find the balance between sobriety, crime-chasing, lusting for a bereaved girlfriend, and keeping just beyond the clutches of an ever-suicide-threatening ex-wife.

Publisher's Summary

Recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler and his friends, computer genius Jimmy and world-class codependent Barbara, are drawn into a murder investigation when the abusive boyfriend of Barbara's Al-Anon sponsee is found dead in her East Harlem apartment. Bruce has to juggle sleuthing, sobriety, a crush on the bereaved girlfriend, and the lure of his compelling but self-destructive ex-wife.

Bruce and his friends follow the killer's trail from the church basements of AA to a funeral and an Italian bakery in Brooklyn, a SoHo art gallery, an upscale lingerie boutique, an auto chop shop, and a near-fatal traffic jam on Canal Street. Bruce uncovers not only a murderer but his own struggle with love addiction.
