About the Author:

Compelled by a series of mysterious letters, up-and-coming editor Lee Perkins begins investigating an unsolved murder case--but fifty years later, is it possible to uncover such deeply hidden secrets?

Review:

An intricate and captivating read throughout. Russell instinctively understands the devices of suspense and tension and uses them to maximum effect. Not by stringing a series of contrived events one after another in a tedious stream of clichés, but by creating a pervasive atmosphere of intrigue and peril which genuinely immerses the reader in the culminating mystery. Written with an acerbic pen Russell moves confidently between time frames with rich thematic undertones that bring each era to life. There is enough here to sate the most demanding of armchair sleuths. "Book Viral"

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 348 pages. When Bert Grayson was found murdered in a dark alley with his throat slit, the case was quickly closed due to a lack of evidence. A drinker and a fighter, he was considered just another cautionary talean unfortunate casualty of hanging around on the wrong side of town. But one woman was convinced there was more to the murder than met the eye. Lillian Grace, a beautiful but narcissistic barmaid trapped in a life of misery, was sure she knew whod murdered the man she loved, but she couldnt get anyone to listen. In her letters to Berts sister, she warned her not to trust the police, convinced that they were part of a larger cover-up. Now, fifty years later, editor and researcher Lee Perkins is introduced to these letters by retired FBI friend Miranda Witherspoon, and he is instantly compelled by the mysterious Lillian, who claims to be the key to unraveling a mystery half a century old. If his experience has taught him anything, it is to follow where the trail leads him, especially when his suspicions and the evidence seem to collide. But time doesnt stop for anyone, and it will take plenty of dogged determination to discover the secrets of this long-buried casesecrets that some have taken to their graves and others have spent decades attempting to forget or protect. This fast-paced murder mystery follows the inquisitive Perkins as he works to rewind the clock, searching for ways to separate the truth from the lies, and bring Bert Graysons true killer to the justice he deserves.
