Editorial Review: “A fresh and engaging take on the familiar hard-boiled detective novel.” — Kirkus Reviews (read the full review)
Former Homicide Detective Maxwell Floyd has hit rock bottom. Broken. Bleeding. A New York minute changed his life forever—his marriage, career, and sobriety lost in the aftermath. He thought he could still make a difference as a private eye, but was dead wrong. He copes with his ongoing failures in love and life the only way he knows—with a bottle. But all the alcohol in the world can’t keep the ghosts of his past from haunting him.
Enter Mr. Fletcher, a secret envoy from the Police Commissioner’s office. He offers Max an opportunity to make things right and hires him to solve the recent and brutal murder of a famous young socialite. The catch: Max will need to use his own resources while staying out of the NYPD’s way. Max is wary but jumps at the chance, desperate for redemption.
The investigation becomes a race to stay one step ahead of the detectives assigned to the case. But while clues are scarce, personal problems abound, forcing Max to contend with his most dangerous enemy. It doesn’t help that Mr. Fletcher hasn’t told him everything. With so many distractions, Max struggles to unravel the mystery, himself becoming the target of the vicious killer. READ CHAPTERS 1-4 HERE.
