Another good Brady Coyne novel. Brady gets a call late one night from Jack Gold, a long-time friend and client who reports that his son and girlfriend have been in a car accident. Jenny, Brian’s girl friend, had been driving and their car left the road on a curve and crashed down a hillside into a frozen river. Jenny’s body has been recovered but there is no sign of Brian. Brady travels up to their house to console and has a conversation with the highly respected local police chief. But things s ...more
Nice details and reads well, but the underlying plot is predictable. Some funny lawyer lines, the main character is well developed as a character and is likeable. The author writes tense scenes well. Without giving plot away, there is a scene in this book in which a surprise takes place and I really enjoyed that. It was well written and funny.
