Publisher's summary

When a struggling author with a secret government past is hired by a wealthy philanthropist to investigate a cold murder case, he has no choice but to expose the dark and buried secrets of a powerful political family in Chicago.

Sebastian Drake is a novelist, working out of a dilapidated apartment in the city, who’s trying to come up with his next story idea. But he’s stuck.

Drake receives an unexpected visit from a man interested in hiring him for a project and who thinks he has just the solution to Drake’s writing challenges. He also thinks that Drake’s past and secret life with a shadow government organization is a valuable asset. His proposition to Drake is simple: become a hired agent to investigate a cold murder case involving one of Chicago’s most powerful political families. The job comes with a decent paycheck, all the support he might need, and the types of real life experiences that can form the basis for great fiction stories.

This is a story about a man with a new lease on life, who leads a dual existence. Behind his desk, he is an aspiring author. On the streets, he is a rogue undercover and unknown vigilante.

His biggest challenge is keeping intact the fine line between reality and fiction.

Excellent Start to a New Series!!!!

I loved this book by Dan Burns, this is my first time to ever hear of him. George Guidall has the PERFECT voice for Sebastian Drake, the protagonist in this book.
This is a fast paced story with a very unique character. The protagonist is tough as grit ex CIA who has moved on in his life. Working at being an author he's accepted a job as a private investigator on a cold murder case from 10 years ago. Meanwhile his publishing agent has gotten him a contract but there's a catch... he has five weeks to complete his book. It's not even near completion. The closer Drake gets to the truth about the murder the more dangerous things become. Not only for Drake but for those around him. When a woman he has just started seeing is murdered he thinks it may have something to do with him and his investigation. But then bad gets worse.
I couldn't put this down and can't wait for the next installment!
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
