With the help of her new assistant, Claude, Claire follows the clues, finding hints to Paul's fate in her other cases especially that of a missing girl in the gritty 1980s East Village and a modern-day miniature horse theft in Marin. As visions of the past reveal the secrets of the present, Claire begins to understand the words of the enigmatic French detective Jacques Silette: The detective won t know what he is capable of until he encounters a mystery that pierces his own heart. And love, in all its forms, is the greatest mystery of all at least to the world's greatest PI.
An addictive new adventure featuring an irresistible heroine.
