Publisher's Summary

Margaret O'Mara is desperate to find her missing brother, Joe Colleran. She doesn't have a clue or a dime, and she hasn't seen her brother in 30 years. The last she heard, he was running a bar in Florida with an old war buddy, Michael Minogue.

But when Minogue is discovered murdered on a Chicago pier, Margaret asks P.I. Paul Whelan to look into it. As Whelan makes his rounds to the dilapidated apartment buildings and smoky bars of Chicago, he discovers that, before his death, Minogue often talked of his old gang of close friends, which mysteriously broke apart after World War II.

Their stories take Whelan through the abandon ruins of Riverview Park, once Chicago's most famous amusement park and the site of a 40-year-old unsolved murder. Now, Whelan must sift through the past to find a killer who stalks the present and Minogue's old friends, who still carefully conceal a dark secret that binds them together.

Unravel another Chicago mystery with Paul Whelan.

    Story
    "A Series I am really fond of!"

    This is a great series, I like the characters and the depiction of the places and landscape and the entire melding of the whole mix. Some books you like for the action, or the place they take you to, or the time period. This book takes you into the community and makes you feel like you have new friends. There is a great whodunit factor in the storyline and the end is held close and a surprise yet withing the grasp of the evidence collected and available to the reader. You like the main character, and the cast of supporting actors around him, as flawed as they all are they are all still on the right side of things. I am very happy to recommend this book and look forward to continuing with the series.
