‘Trudeau is a marvelously flawed hero, driven by the ghosts of this past and mired in a world where everything is falling apart around him…’
Bookseller & Publisher
Philip Trudeau, a once-respected investigative journalist, has stepped on the wrong toes. With his personal life and health deteriorating around him, he is consigned to a suburban newspaper. Sent to cover what appears to be a tragic-yet-routine death at a level crossing, Philip is drawn into a multilayered mystery that involves art theft, political intrigue and business corruption … not to mention murder.
