Publisher's Summary

A politician’s son gets involved in a murder and drags Brady along with him. Running for governor on the Republican ticket, Tom Baron needs his image to be squeaky clean. He employs men like Brady Coyne, a compassionate Boston attorney, to keep problems far away from his campaign. But when his son doesn’t come home one night, Tom’s political strategy becomes a criminal matter. His son’s girlfriend has been murdered and the boy has no alibi. To protect his friend’s political ambitions, Brady digs into the investigation, finding a trail of drugs and corruption that stretches far across the Eastern seaboard. Tom Baron may be his friend, but Brady Coyne will stomach no cover-up. If the son is guilty and Tom is involved, Brady will come down on the would-be governor with a fury that will make Boston politics look like a student council election.

Decent but dated

This was my first Brady Coyne mystery and I decided to listen to the whole book (because I wasn't able to return it). I discovered that the novel was originally published in 1987; I didn't know this going in and wasn't prepared for the casual sexism or introduction to "new" issues (that really aren't new anymore).

Since I was committed to finishing this one, I was pleasantly surprised by how the second half of the book picked up and I really enjoyed the climax of the novel. I probably won't purchase another book in this series, but I can see how the series could grow on you.
