Nate is back and better for it
Nate was a real jerk in the first book, The Tenth Nail. To be honest, he just wasn't a 100 percent upright guy. He was really fallible and behaved questionably. The swign of a good book is when you get to see character growth. While he isn't perfect, Nate does see some growing pains that accompany his shift in character, he is improving. He and his wife get along, and it is about time we get to see someone (Claire) who is devoted to their marriage.
I guess you want to hear about the good stuff? Well, if you read the first book you know that Nate received a little time off and has to go to counseling before he is apermited to return. He and Claire struggle, but are dedicated to overcome his issues with monogamy and rebuild their marriage. But, the mystery of a murder creeps in to his life, and in order to help a buddy Nate reopens old wounds, and it turns out that what he thought were faded scars actually ran deeper than he realized.
The book is outstanding, and I feel it is an improvement on the first book, but then we should always grow and improve. McSorely really has Nate down to a Tee at this point, he plays the haggard detective smoothly, as if he is doing an imitation of someone he knows. It's either that or he is lterally channeling the spirit of some Chandleresque detective. Anything is possible!!!!
This is powerful character study, a marvelous mystery, and a book you won't want to miss. Get book one while you are at it!!!! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

I didn't see that coming!
Kwen Griffeth is an excellent mystery writer! He grabs your attention from the very beginning with all the twists and turns and holds you spellbound right up to the very end.
Paul J McSorley has a dynamic voice that brings the characters to life.
