Summary

When the body of eight-year-old Timothy Watts is found wrapped in a blue blanket in a Portland, Maine park, homicide detective Joe Burgess (introduced in Playing God) vows to find the killer.

Everyone in the neighborhood loved Timmy except his abusive family, but people are unwilling to talk. Even Iris, Timmy's deaf sister, will not share what she knows and soon goes missing. Then things get ugly when the press begins a personal attack on Burgess using information that could have come only from someone in the police department.

Crack another case with Joe Burgess.

Another winner with Kate Flora and Joe Burgess

Daryl's Linda says:
Would very much like to see many more of Kate Flora's Joe Burgess novels! The characters are very well developed, the second book reinforcing/introducing in a wonderful way. The plot development is great, with glimpses that may point to a killer and then again may not.
So glad Chris is still with Joe and that Terry has Michelle. These intense characters need wonderful partners to help them through their most difficult days. Just enough info without embarrassing description. Being an audible addict,
The performance is very strong with the only critique coming from MY Vietnam Vet, who is insulted by the pronunciation "Nam" with a as in candy. In his year+ as a young soldier there he met many soldiers and had many friends who came back wounded or in a body bag. He also is close to many Vietnam veterans, many with PTSD never diagnosed. None of them referred to it this way. They pronounce it "Nam" or Vietnam" with a as in father. Like most Vietnam Vets, he would never voice this to anyone but his very closest friend and spouse. We owe them all our unfailing gratitude and respect.
