From the author of the Mike Shayne Mysteries: A man's obsessive affair with his wife's teenage sister takes him down a dark and dangerous path. A quiet construction engineer in Denver, Colorado, Charlie Dell doesn't need any complications in his life. But his wife, Irma, insists they take in her younger sister, Lois, as a matter of duty. Charlie bristles at the thought of having a seventeen-year-old girl around . . . until he gets one look at Lois. She's a far cry from the buck-toothed kid Dell remembers, and more than willing to indulge in a little sin with her sister's husband. Insane with passion, Dell starts cutting corners at work in order to find time alone with her. But actions have consequences-deadly, serious ones-and the further Dell goes to cover his tracks, the darker and more dangerous his path gets. "This is a taut, matter-of-fact novel-simply and powerfully written." -The Nashville Tennessean Praise for Brett Halliday's Mike Shayne Mysteries "[Mike Shayne is] one of the best of the tough sleuths." -The New York Times "Unlike anything else in the genre." -L. J. Washburn, author of For Whom the Funeral Bell Tolls "Raw, ingenious storytelling . . . Pure pleasure." -Shane Black, creator of Lethal Weapon and writer/director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, on Murder Is My Business
