About this title


After his "promising" (Kirkus Reviews) debut novel, A Firing Offense, George Pelecanos has come into his own with this complex and powerful new novel of virtue and betrayal.
Nick Stefanos, having earned his p.i. license, quickly discovers that snapping photos of unfaithful husbands isn't his thing. Tending bar at the Spot, Nick is closing one night when his high school friend Billy Goodrich shows up. Billy's wife is gone. Nick says he'll find her.
And with that first step, Nick sets out on a one-way path that'll take him through a sewer of theft and intrigue and love.
