Harvey’s knock-out whodunit introduces Michael Kelly, a hard-boiled Chicago PI. This first novel by the co-creator of the TV hit “Cold Case Files” features the investigation of a cold rape case involving high-level cover-ups, the Mob, a serial killer, the recent murder of Kelly’s ex-partner, and crime on the mean streets of Chicago. Narrator Stephen Hoye plays the PI with mounting tension and admirable restraint, keeping the pace appropriately slow, but chilling and mesmerizing. Hoye is exceptional as Kelly’s female friends—throaty, sexy, as determined as any man, but totally feminine. He excels at bringing the rumble of the El, the smell of beer in the Irish bars, and the sinister alleys of the gritty Midwestern city to the mind’s ear. M.T.B.
