The second installment in the acclaimed Claire DeWitt mystery series, from an author who "reminds me why I fell in love with the genre" (Laura Lippman)


The eagerly awaited second book in the buzzed-about Claire DeWitt mystery series, featuring “one of the genre’s most original characters in years . . . as if David Lynch directed a Raymond Chandler novel.” (CNN)

When Paul Casablancas, Claire DeWitt’s musician ex-boyfriend, is found dead in his Mission District home, the police are convinced it’s a simple robbery. But Claire knows nothing is ever simple.

With the help of her new assistant, Claude, Claire follows the clues, finding hints to Paul’s fate in her other cases—especially that of a missing girl in the gritty 1980s East Village and a modern-day miniature horse theft in Marin. As visions of the past reveal the secrets of the present, Claire begins to understand the words of the enigmatic French detective Jacques Silette: “The detective won’t know what he is capable of until he encounters a mystery that pierces his own heart.” And love, in all its forms, is the greatest mystery of all—at least to the world’s greatest PI.

An addictive new adventure featuring an irresistible heroine.

One of the most obnoxious, self-serving protagonists ever, and yet I can't put the story down. I look forward to the next one.

If you're looking for a refreshing mystery try this - she isn't the typical detective, but she is... shall we say... Sherlockian? Well written and somewhat silly, Claire deWitt is a force to be reckoned with.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first in the series - until the very end.
