The fourth Nebraska adventure is “one of the most refreshing additions to the ranks of hardboiled detectives. An engrossing, well-crafted story with many bizarre twists. Top-notch entertainment.” —Publishers Weekly
The private eye and struggling novelist known only as Nebraska is hired to find a missing woman by her mother, who claims her daughter is a sweet recluse who would never run away. But Nebraska knows his client isn’t telling him everything… or she would have gone to the police for help and wouldn’t be so evasive about her family’s past. He soon learns that ignoring his initial reservations could be a fatal mistake as he attracts the unwanted attention of a local mobster, knife-wielding thugs, and a brutal killer.
For Nebraska, the Omaha-based private detective and hopeful mystery writer, things are seldom as straightforward as they first appear. These three stories, featuring characters from the internationally published series of novels that began with The Nebraska Quotient (nominated for a Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writer of America), illustrate the determination, resourcefulness, and, sometimes, deliberate rejection of common sense that drive Nebraska toward the ultimate truth—whether he likes it or not.
