Publisher's Summary

Private detective Bill Smith is hurtled headlong into the most provocative - and personal - case of his career when he receives a chilling late-night phone call from the NYPD, which is holding his 15-year-old nephew Gary. But Gary escapes Bill's custody and disappears into the dark, unfamiliar streets.

Bill and his partner, Lydia Chin, try to find the missing teen; their search takes them to a small town in New Jersey, where they discover that one of Gary's classmates was murdered. Bill and Lydia delve into the crime - only to find it eerily similar to a decades-old murder-suicide. Now, with his nephew's future - and his very life - at stake, Bill must unravel a long-buried crime and confront the darkness of his own past.

Minor detail

Great plot with a great hidden sense of humor. At the start though the book doesn’t seem to give you any clue to go on with, no connection to any character and it just kind of jumps in to the story so I felt disconnected at the start. The book also doesn’t really intensify how critical some situations are. But I pulled through and everything made sense.

An interesting book with some interesting

An interesting book with some interesting and some annoying characters. The kind of story I wanted to see through to the end, only to find it ended in a bit of an anti-climax with a number of characters not getting their overdue comeuppance! lol So, not your traditional ending but an interesting story all the same. Not sure if this belongs in the bottom section of my top tier or the top section of my second tier. Since she has won several awards for her books I'll look for another to try.
