A beautiful, grief-stricken woman vanishes without a trace. The detective hired to find her disappears as well. A dangerous cult manipulates the needy. A dying billionaire rages against fate. And two private investigators, Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, are caught in the middle, trying to stay alive long enough to expose the lies and find the truth . . .
Dennis Lehane, the boldest new voice in detective fiction, straps you in for an explosive ride into a world of lies and corruption where up is down, black is white, and trusting anyone will get you killed. From the gritty streets of Boston to the rum-punch sunsets of the Florida Gulf Coast, Kenzie and Gennaro follow a trail of missing money and missing people. And only one thing's for sure: the more they learn, the more they realize that any step could he their last.
