Overview

#12 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . .

“Brilliantly plotted, with a powerhouse climax.” — Booklist

In street parlance, “the dutch” is another expression for suicide. That’s what everyone assumes happened to Ellen Carnine when her broken body is found 150 feet below the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge in downtown Cleveland. A terse, sad suicide note has been left on the screen of her home computer.

But her grieving father asks private eye Milan Jacovich (it’s pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovitch) to figure out why a bright and successful, dot-com executive like Ellen took her own life. Milan is introduced to a different reality by Ellen’s four best female friends, an old lover, her employers, and some of the lowlifes from Cleveland’s meanest streets.

The search for the truth leads Milan into the unfamiliar territory of Internet chat rooms, where he learns a great deal about the faceless people who live part of their lives behind a screen, becoming best friends—or bitter enemies—without actually meeting.

Milan pushes too far—and uncovers the most brutal and ­heinous crime he’s ever faced.

Industrial security expert Milan Jacovich heard about the suicide of Ellen Carnine on the news, but it meant nothing to him because he did not know her. When Ellen¿s father, Professor William Carnine of the nearby Bryarly College Biology Department, asks Milan to find out why his daughter committed suicide, the sleuth wants to say no. This is not his line of work. However, police officer Martusen sent the doctor who desperately needs closure for him and Mrs. Carnine.

The twenty-nine years old vice president of Wheetek Inc. seemed contented. She was a big success with her firm, an internet company, and had a male roommate. Milan begins finding discrepancies that make him wonder if Ellen really jumped off the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge or did foul play occur and if the answer is yes, by who and why.

The latest Jacovich mystery is a powerful entry in a strong series. Once started on the case, the star sleuth refuses to give it up until he learns the truth. Besides the usual whirlwind fun tour of Cleveland that Drew Carey would enjoy, Les Roberts provides his audience with another entertaining investigative tale.
