Summary

It's been two years since disgraced Illinois governor Ray Perry disappeared from a federal courthouse in Chicago, moments after being sentenced to 38 years in prison on corruption charges.

PI Michael Kelly's investigation begins with Perry's wife, Marie. As he hunts for her husband, Kelly begins to unwind Marie Perry's past. What he finds is a woman who is even more intriguing than her husband, with her own deeply complicated reasons for standing by him.

Critic reviews

"Edgy, and delivered at a cracking pace." ( Mail on Sunday)
"Harvey does for the Windy City what Michael Connelly did for Los Angeles: he commandeers it, warts and all, and wrangles it into his fiction." ( Chicago Tribune)
