Still reeling from his wife's recent miscarriage, Moe Prager is bullied into taking the case of an up-and-coming politico whose career has stalled over the suspicious disappearance of a young woman.
It's been almost two years since Moira Heaton, State Senator Steven Brightman's intern, vanished on Thanksgiving Eve 1981. In spite of Brightman's best efforts to clear his name, he has been tried and convicted in the press. As a reluctant Moe peels away the layers of the case, he discovers the tragic circumstances of Moira Heaton's disappearance are buried deep in the past and that there is another more heinous crime at the heart of it all.
Will the ugly truth set Brightman free or will it bury all the players beneath the crumbling artiface of corruption, murder, and hate?

The Moe Prager series is highly entertaining
If like me you have read or listened to everything written by Michael Connelly and James Lee Burke and wondered where to go next for interesting characters, crackling dialogue and convincing story lines, then I suggest you turn to Reed Farrel Coleman. Stylishly read by Andy Caploe, the Moe Prager stories make excellent listening, with Moe's comments on the world around him often reminiscent of the world weariness of Philip Marlowe. Elite company, in other words.
