Lew Archer knew he shouldn’t have taken the case, but Alex Kincaid seemed so desperate. Kincaid’s loving new bride Dolly had just inexplicably walked out on him, leaving Kincaid more than a little fearful for her sanity—and her safety. So Archer reluctantly agreed to help Kincaid find her. But what he found instead was enough to send a chill down anyone’s spine—a new fresh corpse and evidence linking Dolly not only to this murder but to a series of others dating back to before she was even born.

Winner of the Mystery Writer of America Grand Master Award, Ross Macdonald is acknowledged around the world as one of the greatest mystery writers of our time and is labeled as one of the founding authors of the hard-boiled detective--most notably for Lew Archer in the series of novels on his many detective cases.
