It's an unusual case, but Fred Carver, a disabled Florida P.I., takes it anyway: a married woman pays him a $1,000 retainer to follow her and her lover. Minutes later, a speeding truck strikes her down. It looks like suicide, but Carver smells murder. When the woman's husband kills himself and the lover disappears, Carver knows he's right. Soon he's groping in a maze of escort services and blackmail where death may be penance for the guilty. And a dangerous attraction he's drawn into may lead to his own demise.More
"From the unobtrusive gradations in central Florida bars to the skillful modulations of threat and counterthreat in the most commonplace conversations, Lutz shows once again why he's the current dean of American private-eye writers." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Lutz's blunt character sketches and gradually connected events are subtly effective. His dogged Carver is a believably heroic guy, tough, scarred, and able to exhibit fear and courage at the same time." (Publishers Weekly)
