I received an advance reading copy of this book. What would you do if your ex-wife showed up on your doorstep and asked you to find her missing husband? Well, if your consummate nice guy, Seamus McCree, you grimace and step up to the plate. As he pursues clues, Seamus (and subsequently his son) uncover an intricate web of crimes that either point to his ex-wife's husband running away with laundered money or his ex-wife covering her tracks to account for a murder for hire. All scenarios put Seamus in a precarious position. Does he trust his ex-wife? Does he tell her the husband is a criminal and most likely running to escape prosecution? None of the clues line up the way they should. Seamus's journey is further complicated by his mother, a car accident, a mob boss, his son and the woman he loves. Set in Cincinnati, New Jersey, Savannah and the outerbanks, and Chicago, this top notch whodunit leaves you guessing to the bitter end (although yes, I did figure it out!). A mystery worthy of Agatha Christie and highly recommended.
