“Sharp wit, complex characters, and masterful plotting makes Goldman a writer to watch. Irreverent and insightful, private detective Nils Shapiro is sure to become a fan favorite.” - Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

About the Book:
Private detective Nils Shapiro is focused on forgetting his ex-wife and keeping warm during another Minneapolis winter when a former colleague, neighboring Edina Police Detective Anders Ellegaard, calls. Suburban divorcee Maggie Somerville was found murdered in her bedroom, her body covered with the dust from hundreds of emptied vacuum cleaner bags, all potential DNA evidence obscured. Nils finds that the most frequently called number on Maggie's cell phone belongs to a mysterious young woman whose true identity could shatter the Somerville family.

After the FBI demands that Nils drop the case, Nils and Ellegaard are forced to take their investigation underground
