Three years ago, Dan Champion uncovered a criminal syndicate run by a kingpin known only as the Fat Woman. Champion infiltrated her world of murder, obsession, and perversity, but the case also broke him. He began hallucinating and taking drugs.

Now, Champion is a small-town detective, hoping the ghosts and hallucinations are finally behind him. Then one night he is called to examine the body of a woman who has washed ashore. To his surprise, he recognizes the woman as Samantha, someone he dreamed about during his dark period—a woman who doesn’t exist. Soon Champion is haunted by a team of expert killers who want to make sure he never finds the truth. The ghosts of the dead are all around him, and Champion has to find out who murdered them, or risk becoming one himself.

From Booklist:

Three years ago, Dan Champion, when he was an undercover vice cop for the NYPD, broke up a child-sex slavery ring. But the case cracked Champion, and now he’s a detective in small-town, exurban New York, still wrestling with delusions about a dead child who follows him around and a beautiful woman who wasn’t real. But, in fact, the beautiful woman was real, and she turns up almost dead in Champion’s small town. Soon, two ghostly assassins try to kill him, and he must grapple with his instabilities while trying to track down the Fat Woman, the titular killer in the wind, and her assassins. The prolific Klavan (The Identity Man, 2010) spends too many pages on Champion’s inner demons and many more attempting to build a sense of apocalyptic, near-cosmic menace. But when Champion finally faces the Fat Woman, we learn that the only cosmic thing about her is her banality. That said, if readers slog through the first 200 pages, they will surely stick it out to the end. --Thomas Gaughan
