Years ago, Lou’s wife Liz had an extramarital affair with David Hayes, a young computer specialist at the bank where she is an executive. Drained by the overwhelming demands of marriage to a high-profile cop, Liz fell into the temptation of an office fling, which she soon regretted. When Liz ended the relationship after reconciling with Lou, Hayes reacted by engaging in a daring embezzlement scheme that left millions missing. The money was never found. Now, years later, David Hayes is released from prison, only to be cornered and pressured by people who will torture and kill to get the missing money. Hayes contacts Liz and tries to coerce her into helping him gain access to the bank’s mainframe. But for Liz, the past is only that. Torn between wanting to protect herself, her marriage, and also the bank, she is manipulated into playing double-agent by a former colleague of Boldt’s - without her husband’s knowledge. Boldt, sworn to uphold the law, but with his wife caught in the middle, must skate a delicate line between duty-bound detective and jealous husband if he is to find the bank’s money and keep his family from shattering. Then when Hayes goes missing, and no body is found, Boldt must combine ruse with violent action to sort out lie from fact. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " When we went to see both Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry when they came to talk about their co-authored book Peter and the Starcatchers, we picked up a signed copy of this book. We knew little about Pearson except for what was said at the event, but we hoped for a lot since he was a local author. Well, I hate to say it but I was little impressed with this choppy and complicated book. There were times when the reader was expected to pick up on hints that led to resolutions in the book, yet I didn't pick up on them. The book was not a complete waste of time. I was able to follow the computer lingo which seemed a little out dated. "

    " Great audio tape for a long drive in a snow storm from California to Washington! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 1/21/2014

    " Ridley Pearson's Lou Boldt novels are probably the most real cop procedurals around. This time Boldt's wife, Liz's past catches up with them. A man with whom she had a brief affair during a bad time in their marriage returns to her life as an adversary who wants her to help him get seventeen million dollars he stole out of the bank where she works. This leads to a series of investigations of where the money is hidden, how and how it can be retrieved without causing harm to the Boldt family and their marriage. The conclusion is very satisfactory. "

    " Another fine series with a protagonist who loves jazz piano. Set in Seattle, it's always well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/5/2014

    " A very suspenseful novel. I found it difficutl to read it at certian points because of the fast-paced suspense and intrigue, but if you're up for such, this is a very good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glennie | 12/29/2013

    " The end of the Boldt series. Can't say it was my favorite but it was an ok read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/1/2013

    " I am a big Ridley Pearson fan, but this wasn't my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 11/1/2013

    " Lou and Elizabeth Boldt - main characters. Plausible ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 5/14/2013

    " A fair read as far as the plot is concerned, however I found it to be repetitive and describing the character's emotions seemed to drag on forever. I usually like Ridley Pearson but I don't feel this is his best work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 9/15/2012

    " Possibly my least favorite Ridley Pearson, but still a good read. Questions what a man will do to protect his family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 8/30/2012

    " the end was a little dissapointing, but the book kept my interest the whole time "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crissy | 1/9/2012

    " This was the first Ridley Pearson book I'd read in a long time. I had tried to read this book previously a while back and couldn't get into it. I had a lot of time on my hands and managed to stick it out, and was glad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverly | 5/11/2011

    " What can a relationship endure? Lou and Elizabeth have to answer that question in this #9 from the Bolt/Matthews brand of Ridley Pearson. Not my favorite, but not bad either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Temple | 5/11/2011

    " Super-charged emotions blended with crime fiction. A killer combination resulting in a winning read. I gave it 4 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 2/4/2011

    " This was the last book in the Lou Boldt series. I have read them all and love Ridley Pearson's style. His books keep you on the edge of your seat. This one, however, was not my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 7/15/2010

    " This had far less swearing than the other book of Pearson's that I read. And it was somewhat interesting albeit kind of predictable at the end. The ends do not justify the means. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 11/10/2008

    " I liked the ending but I still don't really understand what happened. I will give Pearson another shot, but this is the 2nd of 2 books of his that I've read that fall short of expectations. "

    " An ok read, so far,...not great and not bad "
