Former private investigator Sean Chercover is back with Trigger City after taking the world of crime fiction by storm with his debut novel, Big City , Bad Blood. Big City earned a slew of Award nominations—for the Barry and Anthony Awards, among others—and won the Shamus, Gumshoe, Crimespree, and Lovey Awards. His second gritty, suspenseful winner recalls the best of Dennis Lehane and Robert Crais and it lifts Chercover’s rapidly rising star into the stratosphere. Trigger City is a Dilys Award winner, a Macavity Award nominee, and it prompted the Chicago Tribune to praise Sean Chercover as “the Ross Macdonald of his time.”

A lonely woman was murdered by her disturbed coworker.
The police have investigated. The case is closed.
But facts are not truth.
A routine investigation of an open-and-shut case is just what PI Ray Dudgeon needs to recover from the physical and emotional consequences of confronting the Chicago Outfit—until "routine" spirals out of control. The victim was no quiet, unassuming, unlucky single woman; she lived a double life in the shadowy realm of covert intelligence . . . and she died for the truth. Suddenly, Ray's ensnared in a conspiracy of darkness that weaves its way through the very fabric of the nation, and in grave danger of becoming collateral damage in America's war on terror. And his greatest enemy may be himself.About the Author:
Formerly a private investigator in Chicago and New Orleans, Sean Chercover has since written for film, television, and print. His first novel, Big City, Bad Blood, won and was nominated for numerous awards. He lives in Chicago and Toronto, and the commute is killing him.

This is the gripping follow up to Sean Chercover's award-winning debut novel, "Big City, Bad Blood". PI Ray Dudgeon is looking for an easy gig as he still is recovering, both physically and emotionally, from going up against the Chicago Outfit. Ray is asked by a grieving father to learn the truth about the daughter he never really new. The job is a loser, the pay is good, and it seems to be a routine open-and-shut case that sounds perfect to Ray. However, the case soon spirals out of control as the victim was not the quiet, shy person she appeared to be. She lived a double life, working in the shadowy realm of covert intelligence; a world of secrets and lies where she fought for the truth and gave her life in the process. Ray is soon caught in a war between private contractors and the darkest sectors of our government and becomes entangled in a conspiracy of darkness woven through the very fabric of the nation. Ray must soon figure out who is really pulling the strings before he becomes collateral damage in America's war on terror. All books are bubble wrapped and shipped via USPS in a sturdy box.
