About this title

Synopsis:

Brady Coyne is an attorney with a select clientele and a small practice - he handles mostly the boring paperwork such as deeds, wills, and divorces and leaves the more exciting aspects of the legal profession to others. A call from Jacob Gold, an old friend and client, on a cold February day, however, shatters the slow pace of Brady's life. Gold's fifteen year old son Brian and Brian's girlfriend Jenny were involved in a tragic accident. Their car went off the road and into a river - Jenny was DOA and Brian is missing, his body probably swept away by the river's current.

With the parents paralyzed by grief, Brady - divorced with two sons of his own - agrees to help as much as he can. But what seems a simple, if tragic, situation quickly becomes complicated. The accident scene makes no sense to Brady, the police chief of this quiet, middle class Boston suburb seems particularly eager to be rid of Brady and then Jacob Gold moves out of his home and disappears. For the sake of his friends and clients, and for their child, Brady must now find out the truth that lurks behind this tragedy - before yet another innocent life is lost.

Review:

Brady Coyne is a Boston lawyer who'd rather be fishing than trying a case. Most of his clients are also his friends, so when Jake and Sharon Gold's 15-year-old son and his girlfriend are killed in a car accident, Brady tries to lighten their load by handling the details of the police investigation and the funeral arrangements. But Brian's body hasn't been recovered yet, despite the efforts of police divers at the accident scene. There are other signs that this was more than a typical scenario of teenage drivers taking a curve too fast, but the authorities don't seem interested in looking into them. Brady soon realizes that someone's applying political pressure to keep the lid on a secret everyone but Brady and the Golds seems to know about: a pornography ring in which a beloved community leader and the best and brightest local high school students are deeply involved. This is Coyne's 17th outing, as reliable a harbinger of fall as the first bonfire of the season. No big surprises here, but William Tapply's popular series continues to win fans charmed by his thoughtful hero, his solid plotting, and his smooth pacing. --Jane Adams
