Publisher's Summary

A missing person case brings private eye Roy Markham to the remote winter-bound college town of Cliff's End, New Hampshire. But what began as a routine investigation quickly becomes dark and dangerous. Six pornographic photos and a tidy little blackmail scheme result in a brutal and baffling murder, and no one is safe - especially Markham himself.

Boring.

Would you try another book from Lawrence Block and/or Peter Berkrot?

It was like listening to an oldtime "film noir". No emotion, very predictable.

Not the L. Block I know

I have read most of the Matt Scudder and the Hitman series but this is before Block learned how to write.
