Overview

A newspaperman investigates a war correspondent’s hotel room murderAs snow falls on Manhattan, three old colleagues warm themselves in the wood-paneled confines of the Midtown Press Club. Two are editors at highbrow New York publications; the other is Timothy Colt, a daring war correspondent whose face is not famous but whose byline is known the world over. New York Star crime reporter John Wells listens as they rehash old times, then follows Colt back to his room to drink some more. He wakes hung over, just in time to see Colt murdered. After a struggle with Wells draws the attention of hotel security, the assassin flings himself out the window. To unmask Colt’s killer, Wells will have to reach deep into his fellow reporter’s past—for the root of this murder lies in a long-forgotten love, and an atrocious war too terrible to be remembered.
