Part 5 of the Michael Kelly series.

							It's been two years since disgraced Illinois governor Ray Perry disappeared from a federal courthouse in Chicago moments after being sentenced to thirty-eight years in prison on corruption charges. P.I. Michael Kelly is sitting in his office when he gets an anonymous email offering to pay him nearly a quarter million dollars if he will find Perry. Kelly's investigation begins with the woman Ray Perry left behind - his wife, Marie. Marie tells Kelly she has no idea where her husband is. Like everyone else, Kelly doesn't believe her. As he hunts for her husband, Kelly begins to unwind Marie Perry's past. Everyone in Chicago has secrets, including the governor's wife. And some of them could get Michael Kelly killed.

"While Harvey's writing has a tendency to go over the top, Hoye's narration is engaging enough to keep listeners engrossed." - AudioFile

Starred Review. "Harvey makes political corruption personal: this isn't a story of anonymous millions being shuffled between various offshore accounts. The consequence of every decision in Kelly's gritty world bleeds." - Kirkus (book review)

Starred Review. "Harvey does that: he surprises you. Repeatedly. Read this book. You'll enjoy it a lot." - Publishers Weekly (book review)

Starred Review. "Harvey... knows Chicago like Raymond Chandler knew Los Angeles, and these mean streets come alive even as bodies pile up." - Library Journal (book review)
