Investigator Wayne Weston is found dead of an apparent suicide in his home in an upscale Cleveland suburb, and his wife and six-year-old daughter are missing. Weston’s father insists that private investigators Lincoln Perry and Joe Pritchard take the case to exonerate his son and find his granddaughter and daughter-in-law. As they begin to work, they discover there is much more to the situation than has been described in the prevalent media reports. There are rumors of gambling debts and extortion, and a group of Russians with ties to organized crime who don’t appreciate being investigated—a point they make clear with baseball bats.
With some assistance from newspaper reporter Amy Ambrose, Perry and Pritchard believe they are making swift progress. But then they are warned off the investigation by a millionaire real estate tycoon and the FBI. Just when they feel they are closing in on a possible source of answers, another murder forces them to change direction in the case.

Good story, well written but I wasn't on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what happens. Reader was fine - able to tell one character from another, but wasn't really special. This is the first of Koryta's Lincoln Perry books that I have read, and it's not quite as riveting as I found The Cypress House and The Ridge (my very favorite). I'll give LP another look - perhaps in subsequent books the character development is better than this one.

For those who don't ike Scott Brick ...
Any additional comments?
... listen to the book on a faster speed.
I think Brick is a great narrator, just way to deliberate. I know they tell you in public speaking to go slower than you think you need to go, but Scott is just too much.
If I listen to him on 1.5 times speed on the Audible app on my iPhone, it's perfect.
Try it, see if you don't like it better.
