For those readers who are used to the “Michael Kelly” series that this author is famous for, this new stand-alone novel is a definite change of pace.
Featuring three students attending Medill School of Journalism/Northwestern University – readers find themselves engrossed with the trio of highly intelligent graduate students who are attending a summer course there. The course is more than interesting as it focuses on cold cases (the deaths of young people), that were put into filing cabinets and basically forgotten about.
Ian is a very smart, very edgy boy who asks many questions that really don’t make a lot of sense…at first. Jake graduated from the University of Chicago Law School at the top of his class, but has no desire to be a lawyer. He’s a tough guy who throws away parking tickets, fights people far bigger than he is, and comes across as a definite outlaw. Last, but definitely not least, is Sarah – extremely attractive, she earned an almost perfect score on her LSAT’s.
This riveting group comes together to study and investigate an old crime that had a victim and a killer; but the killer, according to Jake, was absolutely innocent. As this case expands, bodies and questions start piling up. There may be a secret buried in the justice system – a secret involving many innocent people who are being framed by an authoritative group in Chicago that’s been getting away with murder.
As the three student’s continue to seek the truth, they soon realize that they’ve become targets on someone’s hit list. From the calm campus of Northwestern U. to the mean streets of Chicago to the bottom of Lake Michigan – this thriller has it all.
Michael Harvey remains a fascinating writer; having him move away from his popular series to offer this unforgettable plot is truly a ‘fresh’ thrill for fans everywhere.
Until Next Time, Everybody,
