Summary

Summary

A 2005 Edgar Allan Poe Award Nominee for Best First Novel

This is the remarkable debut mystery from the award-winning author of the 2003 St. Martin’s Press/Private Eye Writers of America Prize for Best First Private Eye Novel.

Investigator Wayne Weston is found dead of an apparent suicide in his home in an upscale Cleveland suburb, and his wife and six-year-old daughter are missing. Weston’s father insists that private investigators Lincoln Perry and Joe Pritchard take the case to exonerate his son and find his granddaughter and daughter-in-law. As they begin to work, they discover there is much more to the situation than has been described in the prevalent media reports. There are rumors of gambling debts and extortion, and a group of Russians with ties to organized crime who don’t appreciate being investigated—a point they make clear with baseball bats.

With some assistance from newspaper reporter Amy Ambrose, Perry and Pritchard believe they are making swift progress. But then they are warned off the investigation by a millionaire real estate tycoon and the FBI. Just when they feel they are closing in on a possible source of answers, another murder forces them to change direction in the case.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A terrific, first-class debut full of suspense, tension, tricks, and charm. If you like Spenser and Hawk, or Elvis and Joe, or Myron and Win, you’re going to love this.” Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author
“Quick pacing, sharp dialogue and very human characters—the good guys and the bad—make Michael Koryta’s debut a fine and satisfying read.” SJ Rozan, Edgar-winning author of Winter and Night
“An incredibly fresh private-investigator novel…Koryta…emerges fully formed in his first effort.” Chicago Tribune
“Koryta is only twenty-one, but he writes with the style of a seasoned vet…This is a writer to watch.” Globe & Mail (Toronto)
“Michael Koryta makes an impressive debut.” Midwest Book Review
“This riveting detective novel should delight fans looking for new talent.” Publishers Weekly
“Scott Brick offers his usual versatile narration, lending very different voices to both partners, one younger than the other. Additional voices are unique, appropriate, and spot-on: irritated cops, powerful Russians, an elderly father-in-law, and an endearing little girl. This mystery, set in Cleveland, moves along wonderfully. It sounds like Brick had as much fun creating voices for the characters as the author did in writing this story.” AudioFile
“Michael Koryta hits the ground running with this masterful debut. He’s already so good, it’s scary!” Steve Hamilton, author of Ice Run
“An exciting debut that crackles with gunfire and terse, dead-on dialogue. This is noir, fresh and fine.” William Kent Krueger, author of Blood Hollow
“The twenty-one-year-old author excels at building characters and story, making this one of the best mystery debuts this year.” Library Journal
“A gracefully written, straight-ahead detective story with a welcome eleventh-hour surprise.” Kirkus Reviews
