Tom Pasmore, ten years old, survives a near-fatal accident. During his long recovery, he becomes obsessed with an unsolved murder and finds he has clues to solving it that he shouldn't. Lamont von Heilitz has spent his life dealing with mysteries, until he wanted to know nothing more of the terror of life and the horror of death. When a new murder disrupts their world of wealth, power, and pleasure, the two must form an unlikely partnership to confront demons from the past and the dark secrets that still haunt the present.

    " This novel introduced us to Tom Pasmore. His natural way of piecing together information turns him into an amateur crime solver. Befriending Lamont Von Heilitz entered him into a chaotic world of the super wealthy. While the 'mystery' itself wasn't that hard to figure out, the characters are wonderful. "

    " Good book. An homage to mystery novels of a bygone age that was quite enjoyable to revisit. Give this one a chance. "

    " Along with Raymond Chandler's _The Long Goodbye_ (which obviously had an influence on Straub's noir novels), this is one of my favorite mystery novels to reread and, since I am focusing on mysteries this year, I had a perfect excuse to do so. Two things which I love about this novel: 1. I think it points to one of the aspects of mysteries which make them so popular to all sorts of people, namely, our preoccupation with the eternal questions of who am I? what do I believe in? what are my thoughts on the big ideas such as truth and justice? And 2. this book references so many other classic mysteries that it also provides its own suggestions on what to read next. I wish that there was an annotated edition but, failing that, I'll just have to keep rereading it. "
