Winner of four major indie publishing gold medals, 2016-17.
From the creator of the Emmy Award-winning Neverwinter Nights, a novel with a unique hero, an unlikely love story, and more twists than San Francisco's Lombard Street.
It's not cozy but it's intimate. It's not procedural but it makes you think, which is why it's been honored both as a mystery and as literary fiction. Its influences range from Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep to the Coen Brothers' The Big Lebowski to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.
"Compelling, mysterious, tender and moving...." - IndieReader, March 2017
"Rating: 9/10. The intricate plot is ingeniously executed so that all pieces of the puzzle fit together.... Twists and turns that at first appear questionable end up working perfectly.... The prose is top notch.... The book's distinctively original structure moves the story along briskly...." - The BookLife Prize, Publishers Weekly, September 2017
