I've read several of Koryta's novels and I find them much fun to read . This story finds Lincoln Perry a P.I. re-connecting with a childhood friend only to see him killed. He makes it a personal vendetta to get to the bottom of his death and encounters several unscrupulous characters including some police.

Great instalment to the first book by this author. The plot is complex & full of real characters, good & bad. Lincoln Perry & Joe Pritchard are very different men but compliment & balance each other as they attempt to clear the name of Lincoln's best friend from childhood. Lincoln hasn't been welcome in the old neighbourhood since he sent his friend to prison years ago but old loyalties run deep & the past keeps re-surfacing as they make their way. Can be read as a stand alone book but is richer if you've read the first one.
