4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Investigator and former Marine Wayne Weston is found at home, killed by a single gunshot wound to the head, the gun still lying in his right hand.

There is no sign of his wife and six-year-old daughter. The police believe Wayne Weston killed his family before turning the gun on himself.

Weston's father is convinced his son was murdered. He turns to Lincoln Perry, former cop, now private investigator, for help. All the evidence supports the police's conclusions, but as soon as he starts asking questions, Lincoln hears rumours of gambling, extortion, and links to Cleveland's Russian mob.

When the FBI asks him to back off, followed by a second murder, Lincoln is more determined than ever to uncover the truth, even if that means putting himself in danger ...

Review by

It seems that this is Koryta's first novel,written when he was 20. Enjoyable as it was,this is clearly an apprentice work and not up to the high standard of his other books.It introduces his series character,the Private Eye,Lincoln Perry in a case which includes the Russian Mafia and corrupt individuals of all sorts.It will be interesting to see how this character develops as the series progresses.

Review by

A crime fiction series based in Cleveland? Here it is...the first book in a series based on two former Cleveland cops, relatively new in the PI business. One young, one old. It was a fast well written story. I liked the setting and the characters. The age-related gaffe: the way Kortya depicts the mother-daughter relationship--at 21 he knows girls--the relationship between mother and daughter is intense but pretty shallow. All in all, a professional first novel effort. I'll go on to read others in the series.
