Maxim Jakubowski’s long-awaited private eye novel. Dark, erotic and gripping. When you’re a private detective and life’s dealing you all the wrong cards, you can never afford to say ‘no’ to a case.
Two strangers come through the investigator’s door on that fateful day. One sad husband looking for his missing wife and a gorgeous redhead anxious to find her little sister and a stolen book.
The investigation takes the PI from London to Amsterdam and then to New Orleans and New York, as the search for two missing women curiously coincide.
Then there’s Cornelia, a woman who combines the roles of hit woman, strip-tease artist and book collector. A woman whose path it’s better not to cross. No wonder things start to turn very sour indeed…
