Edgar-winning true crime writer Earley (The Hothouse, etc.) delivers a fast-paced but uneven fiction debut. U.S. Senate investigator Nick LeRue spends most of his time vetting nominees for federal judgeships—that is, until he's contacted by Melanie Cole, who wants him to track down her twin, Heather, a reporter who's vanished from the small Mississippi town where she'd gone to research a 1955 lynching. LeRue agrees, mainly because he still loves Heather, who broke his heart two years ago when sh ...more

At first it was slow with politicians backstabbing each other. Then when Nick was encountered by Melanie it all changed. The backstabbing was still present but it was in the background until the end where who done it was revealed. Do stick with it because you will be pleased with the end result. Though there were things that I didn't like at first, but Earley later explained with background story or spelled it out right. Please enjoy.

I like Pete Early...Really enjoyed Super Casino and Circumstantial Evidence. I gave this a try as it's a fiction offering...Good story for crime/mystery fans.
