“[Its] devastating final scenes elevate the novel to an instant classic. The painful climax of this novel, as unexpected as it is powerfull, will move you in ways that crime fiction rarely can.” (Washington Post)
“Excellent… [a] machinegun-paced debut.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
Winner of the 2008 Shamus Award.

A Noir Standout

I consider this sequel to Richard Aleas' excellent debut, Little Girl Lost, to be a modern day noir classic. It's a well-paced, character-driven mystery that goes to very dark places but is never less than riveting. Narrator L. J. Ganser is a perfect match for the material. Highly recommended.

Ending

An unexpected ending. A nice alternative to the usual thing we find in thriller books.
