"This series is a small treasure." —BOOKLIST

A killer terrorizes Chicago's diverse Uptown neighborhood. Private investigator Paul Whelan's specialty is tracking down missing persons, but when his good friend is found slain in an alley, Whelan is steered down a path of violence as he searches for answers.

His investigation is interrupted by the arrival of an attractive young woman, Jean Agee, who is on her own search for her missing brother. But as clues lead Whelan to believe the two cases may be connected, the body count rises quickly, and he finds himself racing to catch a killer before he strikes again.

I had never heard of the author Michael Raleigh until I read his very moving novel, Castle of the Flynns, and finished the book wishing deeply that the Flynn's were my family. That book was filled with so many likeable, lovable characters--who were also characters. I also finished that novel determined to find anything else I could find by this terrific author. This book is apparently one in a series of mysteries that center on Paul Whelan, an ex-Chicago-area copy turned private investigator, and again while I found the story compelling, it was really the characters that drew me in and carried me to the end. I finished this book liking Paul Whelan very much, and equally so the obnoxious, exasperating, but strangely likable Detective Baughman. I will definitely be reading more books by this author.
