An Idaho sleuth hunts a missing woman after a series of bizarre accidents, in this mystery from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
After a small plane plummets into a gas station in rural Idaho, ex-musician and sometimes-sleuth Chris Klick knows that his dream of a quieter, simpler life far from Los Angeles may not be as easy to achieve as he hoped . . .
Now he must team up with his buddy Lyel to track down a missing county courthouse employee connected to the plane crash and other freak accidents. Was she kidnapped? Is she on the run from her creditors? Searching for answers and finding only trouble, Klick’s questions pile up as the stakes climb ever higher.
Originally published under the name Wendell McCall, this is the follow-up to Dead Aim, a mystery which “balances all the best P.I. elements with a lyrical sense of the country . . . Sardonic, wry, and remarkable in both plotting and pacing” (Kirkus Reviews).
