Contents: Publisher's Note:
This outstanding first novel introduces Zachary Klein's unique, supercharged style and his remarkable Boston private eye, Matt Jacob. Unable to face his painful past, Matt cuts himself off from life until two seemingly unrelated cases combine to snare him in a web of adultery, betrayal, and murder.
Matt has a cloudy past -- a freak accident that wiped out most of his family and a P.I. license buried somewhere in his Depression-era, Art Deco-style apartment. He does his best to maintain his self-imposed alienation by watching too much TV and doing too many drugs. But the real world beckons when his psychologist transgresses the limits of t heir therapeutic relationship by asking him to investigate a suspicious break-in at her office building .At the same time, his best friend, Simon, a hotshot lawyer, persuades him to follow his wife and find the cause of her recent hellish nightmares. Reluctantly Matt digs up his P.I. license, dusts off his gun, and hits the streets. Strangely, the two cases converge when he spots Simon's wife entering this psychologist's building, and his investigations uncover a police conspiracy that hints at a complex and tragic secret that someone is willing to kill for in order to keep hidden.
