When Sloane, a successful forger, is released from prison after taking part in a high-profile art scam, he finds a letter from the woman with whom he had a passionate affair in his youth. She tells him that years ago she gave birth to his daughter, Connie. She implores Sloane to find her and make peace between them. Sloane agrees, but when eventually he finds Connie, she is locked into a highly charged relationship with Vincent Delaney, a man whom the police believe has killed once and will not hesitate to kill again. Sloane has to decide whether to walk away or stay and fight for her. And the more Delaney feels cornered and under pressure, the more unpredictable and dangerous he becomes.

Moody, Bluesy and well read

There is not a lot of jazz in this story and I can still almost hear it behind the voice of Stephen Greif all the way through .

It is a story set in the world of painters, poets crooks and thugs.

Maybe a little trendy with Tuscany and Sav Blanc and maybe a jump to right into a willing suspension or maybe just an odd surprise here and there.

My first John Harvey and a great change of pace from my other mysteries, so I now have a couple more JH on my wish list.

But how did John Harvey convey Jazz through prose?and voice?

This is a 'second listen story' for me as I try and discover how he did that.
