Publisher's Summary

Whisper Ridge, a multimillion-dollar architectural project built to house paroled murderers, was the passion of Alexandra Sanabria, the daughter of a deceased Mafia don. But the program never got off the ground. Uninhabited but also kept off the market, with taxes paid by a legal trust that Sanabria established just before she and her husband left town, the home remains as a strange monument to dangerous secrets. While the couple's abrupt exit was unique, it was also not regarded as criminal until the bones of Alexandra's husband were found more than a decade later. Private investigator Lincoln Perry has mixed feelings when an ex-con hires him to find Alexandra. It is a task that will challenge both Perry's abilities as a detective and his commitment to that calling.

Fine Book

Any additional comments?

Michael Koryta is a gifted writer, probably in the top three writing in this genre today. The story was entertaining and usually engrossing, with only a few flat spots. As I often find, certain narrators are well matched for the book and Scott Brick does a masterful job setting the mood and defining the characters through his interpretation and delivery.

This is my second Koryta book and neither has disappointed. This was a credit well spent.

Highly recommended.

Scott Brick cost this one a star.

This is my second Koryta novel. Both are good. I see why Michael Connelly recommends him. That said, I liked the one from my eReader a lot better because Scott Brick is getting a bad case of DickHillitis. I can't/won't listen to Dick Hill anymore and am close to cutting off Scott Brick. Every word they deliver is with the utmost gravity. This is the very definition of over-acting. Michael, PLEASE get a new narrator. Scott was good. He needs to dial it back. Send him to study under George Guidall for a while maybe.
