Remer was a Manhattan p.i. until one of his targets got the better of him and found a way to force him into retirement. He's been living an anonymous life since then, for six years, running a liquor store in Southampton, trying to stay in the shadows. But then a voice from his past needs help, and he agrees to work one last case--a missing person--in order to get away from the threat he's lived under once and for all. Trouble is, even if he finds Mia Ferrara, even if she's safe, that might not be possible.
Daniel Judson's talent for tormented heros and irresistible noir styling combine in this dark and searing thriller.

Hidden behind the heavily tinted windows of his panel van, he was free to watch without being seen, a simple necessity that, in theory at least, might someday prove to be nothing less than a matter of life and death.
His life and death.
