When Felix Brewer meets nineteen-year-old Bernadette “Bambi”
Gottschalk in 1959, he charms her with wild promises, some of which he actually
keeps. Thanks to his lucrative—if not all legal—businesses, she and their three
little girls live in luxury. But in 1976, Bambi’s comfortable world implodes
when Felix, facing prison, vanishes. Though Bambi has no idea where her
husband—or his money—might be, she suspects one woman does: his devoted young
mistress, Julie. When Julie disappears ten years to the day after Felix went on
the lam, everyone assumes she’s left to join her old lover—until her remains
are discovered in a secluded park.
Now, twenty-six years later, Roberto “Sandy” Sanchez, a
retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is
investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web of bitterness,
jealousy, resentment, greed, and longing stretching over five decades. And at
its center is the man who has never been forgotten by the five women who loved
him: the enigmatic Felix Brewer.
Felix Brewer left five women behind. Now there are four.
