Porter Wren makes a living sifting through the debris of New York's most horrific murders and sensational crimes, searching for the twist that the beat reporters missed, the illuminating irony, the romantic detail that adds meaning to the relentless wreckage of human appetite and folly. Devoted to his wife and two children, why then does Porter telephone his wife and lie about his plans for the evening, minutes before he finds himself in the Fifth Avenue apartment of a beautiful woman with a story to tell, staring at her late husband's autopsy photos and reading the police files on his unsolved murder? Who is Porter Wren? The man who protects his family behind walls, electronic security devices, and unpublished phone numbers? Or the man who in order to indulge his need to understand the danger, deceptions and desires of the urban night will place them at risk? And equally urgent, who is the woman who beckons him and what is her story? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kat C | 1/12/2014

    " This one was relatively easy to figure out, which, by itself isn't a kiss of death. But the author had an unfortunate tendency to describe his characters' personalities via their breasts and laugh lines. Eh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ashley | 1/11/2014

    " This started off really good but just fell away at the end where it seems basically the main character (and hence the author) just couldn't be arsed. It was kinda weird to read a book where beepers and VHS are the cutting edge of technology (albeit it was set and written in the mid 1990s). "

    " Compelling NY thriller, dramatic but somewhat literary and very NY. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Nic Penrake | 1/5/2014

    " Possibly the best noir thriller I've ever read. It has everything you could want: atmosphere of a city, a man obsessed by a mysterious woman, unpredictable twists, keen observation and empathetic characters. "
