In the words of Lee Child on Gone to Dust, “I want more of Nils Shapiro.” New York Times Best Selling author and Emmy Award-winning writer Matt Goldman obliges by bringing the Minneapolis private detective back for another thrilling, stand-alone adventure in The Shallows.
A prominent lawyer is found dead, tied to his own dock by a fishing stringer through his jaw, and everyone wants private detective Nils Shapiro to protect them from suspicion: The unfaithful widow. Her artist boyfriend. The lawyer’s firm. A polarizing congressional candidate. A rudderless suburban police department. Even the FBI.
Nils and his investigative partners illuminate a sticky web of secrets and deceit that draws national attention. But finding the web doesn’t prevent Nils from getting caught in it. Just when his safety is most in peril, his personal life takes an unexpected twist, facing its own snarl of surprise and deception.
In The Shallows, Goldman delves into the threat of dark history repeating itself while delivering another page-turner with his signature pace, humor, and richly drawn characters.

In bestseller Goldman's superior third mystery featuring Minneapolis PI Nils Shapiro of Stone Arch Investigations (after 2018's Broken Ice), Nils looks into the murder of lawyer Todd Rabinowitz found below the surface of a lake secured to a pier with a fish stringer through his mouth at the request of the victim's widow, Robin. The Greater Lake Minnetonka PD is also on the case. Robin admits to Nils that she was having a relationship with sculptor Arndt Kjellgren, but insists that the murder was connected to Todd's legal firm. While visiting the firm, Nils spies local far-right political candidate Karin Tressler just before the announcement of a bomb threat against the lawyers. The bombing is followed by Arndt's arrest and subsequent suspicious escape from the GLMPD. An apparent murder suicide raises the ante. Fortunately, Nils can turn for support to great people from Stone Arch, the Minneapolis PD, and the FBI. Goldman seasons the complicated puzzle with healthy doses of dry wit and meaningful secondary stories for his characters. Hopefully, Nils and company will return soon.
