Summary

The daunting task that confronts Gurney, once the NYPD's top homicide cop: determining the guilt or innocence of a woman already convicted of shooting her charismatic politician husband. Gurney quickly finds himself waging a dangerous battle of wits with a thoroughly corrupt investigator, a disturbingly cordial mob boss, a gorgeous young temptress, and a bizarre assassin whose childlike appearance has earned him the nickname Peter Pan. But the identity of the villain at the mystery's center turns out to be the biggest shock of all....

"It's always a pleasure to watch a keen mind absorbed in a difficult puzzle, which is how Dave Gurney distinguishes himself in John Verdon's tricky whodunits." (New York Times)
"Verdon's cleverness again shines in Peter Pan Must Die." (Associated Press)

Page turner with hero

Certainly up to usual standard and I love Jeff Harding's narration.
Also like the fact that relationships underpin the action.
