An ex-cop who navigates by a moral compass stubbornly jammed at true north, Dave Wakeland is a talented private investigator with next to zero business sense. And even though he finds himself with a fancy new office and a corporate-minded partner, he continues to be drawn to cases that are usually impossible to solve and frequently don’t pay.

When Wakeland is hired by a terminally ill woman to discover the whereabouts of her adopted child—who disappeared as an adult more than a decade earlier—it seems like just another in a string of poor career decisions. But it turns out this case is worse than usual, even by his standards. With only an anonymous and vaguely worded tip to guide him, Wakeland interviews an imprisoned serial killer who seems to know nothing about the case, but who nonetheless steers him toward Vancouver’s terrifying criminal underworld.

And it all goes downhill from there.

Whatever ghosts drive Wakeland, they seem to drive him inexorably toward danger—a journey he’s content to take, so long as it means finding out what happened to someone the rest of the world seems happy enough to forget. With nothing to protect him but his wit and his empathy for the downtrodden and disenfranchised, Wakeland is on the case.

Review Quotes

“Haven’t yet heard of Sam Wiebe? You will soon…Lots of personal demons and good backstories give this novel heft. Wiebe is definitely a writer on the rise.”

Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Sharp and terrific…A harrowing, superbly puzzling, and richly cinematic tale.”

Vancouver Sun

“A story as appealing as it is mysterious.”

Toronto Star

“Moody, atmospheric, gray, and pensive…this is what being a P.I. is like. No glamour, girls, and glitz. Just hard-nosed reality in all its gloom and glory.”

Great Mysteries and Thrillers

“Wiebe illustrates the law of the jungle here, and he does it with great narrative skill and some very cool dialogue.”


“The enigmatic, intriguing tough guy at its center and gritty local color…deliver a message about Vancouver’s vulnerable female sex workers.”

Publishers Weekly

“Witty, smart, detailed, and highly entertaining, Wiebe has a gift for place and character.”

Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
