							Private investigator Jack Pellum has spent two years searching for the man he believes murdered his wife— a man he last saw wearing a peacoat and a fedora. Months of posting fliers and combing through crime records yield no leads. Then a local writer commits suicide, and he leaves a bewildering message that may be the first breadcrumb in a winding trail of unsolved murders... 

Michael Underhill is a philosophical man preoccupied by what-ifs and could-have-beens, but his life is finally coming together. He has a sweet and beautiful girlfriend, and, together, they're building their future home. Nothing will go wrong— not if Underhill has anything to say about it, but the problem is that he has a dark and secret past, and it's coming back to haunt him. Inexorably drawn together, these two men find themselves caught up in a mystery where there is far more than meets the eye and nothing can be taken for granted.

"A new master mystery writer emerges." - Forbes Magazine

“Relentless . . . Superior prose, plotting, and characterization put Dolan in the top rank of crime novelists.” - Publishers Weekly (starred)

“The Man in the Crooked Hat expertly splinters into several investigations and delivers parallel stories of Jack’s quest and Michael’s rebuilding of his life. Each plot tendril blissfully leads to the next as Dolan illustrates intelligent plotting. A hint of humor and a flair for the ironic also elevate the story." - Washington Post

"...overall, this is a solid performance that suits the book. A fascinating look into the mind of a killer and the ripple effects of a murder." - Booklist
