Overview

Finalist for the Shamus Award of the Private Eye Writers of America

Jack Paine, is battling alcoholism after a troubled youth, and his current case makes the struggle harder. Calling for an envelope as instructed by a phone call from a client, Morris Grumbach, Paine finds Grumbach dead, an apparent suicide. He has left photos of three men for the detective, slim clues to deeply buried crimes. Paine drives from Manhattan to the tonier suburbs, questioning Grumbach's daughters and his lawyer, but always running into stone walls. When the investigator falls in love with one daughter, Rebecca, he tries harder to gather evidence of incredible acts and to save Rebecca and himself as they're stalked by killers, intent on keeping scandal from ruining their sneaky games. Thriller fans should like Jack Paine a lot, and await more stories about the appealing detective.

"Sarrantonio's mystery debut suggests the influence of Ross MacDonald's moody private eye Lou Archer, but his story is original in concept and execution...Thriller fans should like Jack Paine a lot, and await more stories about the appealing detective."
-- Publishers Weekly

"A moody story with lots of promise."
-- Mystery Scene

*Name: Plague, or Poison... whichever name l feel like using at that moment... *Gender: She-cat *Description: Dark calico, ice-blue eyes, scars on muzzle and shoulders *Stuff: Um... xD l really don't care for rping that much. I only do it because l'm addicted, there're two people that l don't EVER want to lose, and l have nothing better to do with my life. So, l advise you to quit before you are dependent on you Nook. :/ Just sayin'. *Mate: None *Crush: Honestly, guys! We're cats, we aren't supposed to have elaborate ((l think l spelled that wrong...)) social lives. I don't have a crush. *Kits: None, and l find them quite annoying, so l dun want any. *History: lf you're that nosey, just ask me. But, l might strangle you, because my past makes me very emotional when l talk about it. :/ l'm not kidding. *Rank: Past warrior of Evil Within, the GOA, whatever the name of the last group l was in, and now this one. Just to throw it out there, Evil Within is NOTHING compared to when Glare, Sienna, Silver, River, Unknown, Amble, Karma, Moonscar, and Broken were there. And it'll never be the like it was again, for five of those people have quit, one is dead, one has disappeared, and the last two aren't enough. That is all.
