    Brad Smith continues to make a name for himself as a darkly comic crime novelist. His second mystery starring Virgil Cain, Crow’s Landing finds the jack-of-all-trades out for a day of fishing on the Hudson River. But when he reels in a strange steel cylinder, a crooked cop quickly seizes it - along with his boat. Soon Virgil is teaming up with Dusty, a single mom who seems to know a little too much about the cylinder and its contents.
