Now, he has two more cases he doesn't want, cases that will lead unerringly to the discovery of murder. In one of them, he must stop Adele Tree, the runaway teenager he saved from vice in Vengeance, from destroying the unpublished manuscripts of a famous reclusive author. In the other, Lew accepts the aid of his armed friend Ames McKinney in tracking down the lost sister of a penniless man.More
"Scott Brick seems to own each word. His delivery is thoughtful and relaxed, and it holds the perfect weight and texture to fit the plodding, dispirited detective. A superb interpretation." (AudioFile)

Introspective and Compelling
This is an excellent audio book. The dual plot lines are told well, with individual voices and points of view. The characters are described to make their actions believable and interesting.
The main character, Lew Fonesca, is a former investigator crippled by depression. He only gets pulled into other people's problems out of loyalty. The author has a good understanding of depression, so Lew's pessimistic introspection is authentic.
Scott Brick is a consistently excellent narrator. He gives the different voices life and distinction.
I listened to this book in several sittings, but it would have been excellent all at once. The only benefit of taking breaks is a chance to think about the several layers of the story.
