There are no second acts for the dead...or are there?
For over twenty years, retired NYPD officer and PI Moe Prager, has been haunted by the secret that would eventually destroy his family. Now, two years after the fallout from the truth, more than secrets are haunting the Prager family. Moe Prager follows a trail of graverobbers from cemetery to cemetery, from ashes to ashes and back again in order to finally solve the enigma of his dead brother-in-law Patrick. He plunges deeper into the dark recesses of his past than ever before, revisiting all of his old cases, in order to uncover the twisted alchemy of vengeance and resurrection. Will Moe, at last, put his past to rest? Will he find the man who belongs in that vacant grave or will it remain empty, empty ever after?

Reed Farrel Coleman is the winner of the Shamus, Barry, and Anthony Awards and has been nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, and Gumshoe. He is also the former Executive Vice President of Mystery Writers of America. Reed lives with his wife and two children on Long Island.From Publishers Weekly:
In the dark, compelling fifth Moe Prager mystery from Anthony-winner Coleman (after 2007's Soul Patch), the PI and former New York City cop pays a heavy price for a choice he made in the late 1970s after locating the missing Patrick Maloney. Prager had decided to preserve both the secret of Patrick's whereabouts and sexual orientation from Patrick's sister, Katy. When Prager marries Katy years later, the shadow of his deception weighs heavily over him, and Katy's eventual discovery of the truth—after Patrick's death—costs him her love. The divorced pair reunite after an unknown enemy launches a complicated campaign of terror against them, aided by a seemingly resurrected Patrick. The occasionally overly convoluted plot and a heavy reliance on earlier books make this less accessible to newcomers, who may also not be as moved as old-timers by the downbeat ending. While this appears to be the end of the series, fans of well-written PI novels will hope to see more of Prager. (Apr.)
