Returning to the hometown where he once failed to save a young girl from her suicidal father, private investigator Rick Rounder clashes with his policeman brother during a missing-child case that is complicated by the century-old death of a poverty-stricken youth.

McMillan Palgrave
“Punchy and raw, a blend of hard-boiled old school and new bloody thriller. . . crime at its best.” —Waterstone’s (UK)
Rick Rounder returns to his hometown a decade after failing to save a young girl from her suicidal father. He sets up as a private eye, much to the envy of his policeman brother Sam, who has risen up the ranks to chief. The two brothers square up across the sibling divide as they are both drawn into the case of a missing girl.

But the case gets more complicated as Rick’s past catches up with him, and the only clues that the brothers have, relate to a girl who lived—and died—in poverty one hundred years ago. The amateur historian has one last lesson to teach.
