Booklist Reviews 2005 February #2
Formerly an investigative reporter for the Indianapolis Standard, Nick Bertetto is now a freelance writer and stay-at-home dad. His last investigation resulted in the kidnapping of his wife, Joan, who now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, necessitating Nick's abandoning his investigative work. That changes when a homeless man makes a cryptic comment to Nick about Indiana state representative Calvin Cahill, who has been missing for several days. With Joan staying with her parents, Nick gets the opportunity to dig deeper. Perona effectively combines an engaging plot, full of the details of investigative reporting, with an appealing hero who must balance his love for his wife against his desire to return to a job he also loves. The second in a series to watch. ((Reviewed February 15, 2005)) Copyright 2005 Booklist Reviews.
