In this brilliant new novel in the New York Times bestselling series, Detective Nathan Heller tackles his most notorious case-the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby….
In Matt Scudder’s mind, money, power, and position elevate nobody above morality and the law. Now the ex-cop and unlicensed p.i. has been hired to prove that socialite Richard Thurman orchestrated the brutal murder of his beautiful, pregnant wife. During Scudder’s hard drinking years, he left a piece of his soul on every seedy corner of the Big Apple. But this case is more depraved and more potentially devastating than anything he experienced while floundering in the urban depths. Because this investigation is leading Scudder on a frightening grand tour of New York’s sex-for-sale underworld — where an innocent young life is simply a commodity to be bought and perverted … and then destroyed.
