Running away from yourself never works. You'll always catch up.

"Donaldson, at his trademark best, fleshes out the characters to the max...and it's all wrapped around a well-paced, cleverly-plotted mystery that will leave readers wanting more."
--Charleston Post on The Man Who Killed His Brother

Mick "Brew" Axbrewder was once a great P.I. That was before he accidentally shot and killed a cop-worse, a cop who happened to be his own brother. Then Mick's partner, Ginny Fistoulari, blew off her own hand protecting him from a confrontation brought on by his alcoholism. Unsurprisingly, Mick and Ginny aren't on great terms any more.

Now, a week after an incident in which he was shot, barely back on his feet, Mick has agreed against his better judgement to join Ginny in providing security at a "murder mystery camp", where a dozen people stay in an isolated, snowbound lodge to play at being detectives. Then a real killer starts bumping people off, one by one...

As ever, Stephen Donaldson shows why he's regarded as one of America's greatest storytellers, with a tale of human pain and human triumph.

Ginny barked, "Freeze!" in a voice that threatened to crack the floorboards.  Her .357 lined up straight on his face.
He didn't freeze.  Maybe he was too scared.  He wheeled away as if she’d already fired.
 
Inadvertently he blundered against the door and knocked himself down.  Snow blew across him from the porch.  Eighteen inches of it had accumulated outside, and it was still falling.
 
Ginny rushed forward, crouched nearly on top of him.  Then she corked the muzzle of her gun on his nose.
