Judge Joe Crater''s disappearance in 1930 spawns countless conspiracy theories and captures the imagination of a nation caught in the grip of The Depression. Fifteen years later, Detective Fintan Dunne answers a summons to New York where he is asked to solve the old case.
Annotation:
Peter Quinn brings back hard-boiled detective Fintan Dunne, the protagonist of his earlier novel THE HOUR OF THE CAT, and has him investigate a cold case involving a real-life New York Supreme Court judge who vanished under mysterious circumstances in 1930. Though Quinn introduces several fictional characters, his surprising solution to the disappearance of Judge Joseph Crater, who was a central figure in a corruption scandal involving FDR, is entirely fact-based and plausible.

Praise

"Quinn not only makes the existence of clues at such a late date plausible but also concocts an explanation that's both logical and surprising. The depth and complexity of the lead character is a big plus." (starred review) 05/24/2010
