When an Atlanta corporate attorney discovers a dark secret, it costs him his life. Jason Garrett has a promising career, prestige, money, and a beautiful wife. He is Schmitt & Lawson's biggest rainmaker and is on the fast-track to partnership. Then he makes a startling discovery. Shortly after the discovery, Jason Garrett vanishes, and Garrett's wife, Julia, who is frustrated with Atlanta PD's inability to find Jason, hires Atlanta's premier private investigator Nick Price to find her husband. As the case escalates, Price digs deeper into the dark secret Jason Garrett uncovered-a feat that could cost Nick Price his life. In this first in the series of Nick Price novels, with its lean prose, crackling dialogue, and razor-sharp characterization, the tough, wisecracking and funny Atlanta PI uncovers a network of criminals who will stop at nothing to keep their dealings hidden.
