Summary

It wasn't the worst sound Paine had ever heard, but it came very close - a single strangled cry, and then a terrible gasping, then the sound of the receiver banging against a table leg again and again. Paine's caller had said that he was going to hang himself; the private detective didn't have time not to believe him.

In a haunting novel of detection which calls to mind the writing of Ross Macdonald, Al Sarrantonio has created an investigator whose search uncovers clues about his own past and a crime that has its roots in secrets not only thought buried, but lost as well.

A Bit Meandering

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own. This book is reminiscent of the old film noirs private eye stories. It starts with a very compelling hook but, unfortunately for me, I just didn't latch onto any of the characters. It felt very dry and somewhat meandering. The narrator did a nice job in conveying the mood of the film noirs type story.

Good opening hook

Good opening hook caught my attention, unfortunately lost me with too much swearing. Robert J. Sciglimpaglia did a good job narrating. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Interesting Plot

A new author, liked the plot and how he figured it out. It was rather a challenge for this investigator, and frustrating. Enjoyed and the narration Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
