The hunt takes Drake to places he’d never expect. He’s anxious to close this case and get back to his business in L.A., but he’s constantly haunted by the memory of his wife and young daughter, killed in a mysterious house fire.

The authors Janet Elizabeth Lynn Will Zeilinger have written a novel that captures the essence of California and its mean streets of the 1950s. Skylar Drake is the hero who takes his hard knocks with calm resignation and with wry humor. When added to an intriguing mystery, SLIVERS OF GLASS becomes a thoroughly enjoyable jaunt in the tradition of the classic detective story.
