Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane delivers an explosive tale of integrity and vengeance heralding the long-awaited return of private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro.
Amanda McCready was four years old when she vanished from a Boston neighborhood. Kenzie and Gennaro risked everything to find her only to orchestrate her return to a neglectful mother and broken home.
Amanda, now sixteen, is gone again.
Haunted by their consciences, Kenzie and Gennaro revisit the case that troubled them the most. Their search leads them into a world of identity thieves, methamphetamine dealers, an unstable crime boss and his demented wife, a priceless artifact, and a Russian gangster. In their fight to confront the past and find Amanda, Kenzie and Gennaro will be forced to question if it's possible to do the wrongthing and still be right or do the right thing and be wrong."
