The second adventure for Nebraska P.I. proves that “William J. Reynolds’ Shamus Award nominated first effort was no fluke. Gripping.” The Times-Herald
Nebraska is an ex-PI who’d like to be a novelist, but the writing of his book is going slowly, his marriage is disintegrating, and the bills are piling up. So he agrees to find the missing daughter of a local banker, which appears to be a pretty ordinary case, until the banker is killed and it seems the murderer also has the girl. Nebraska’s relentless investigation plunges him into the cold depths of Omaha corruption and into the center of a raging snowstorm…and he’ll be lucky if he can make it out alive.
