Annie O'Neill has it all: a cozy Manhattan apartment, a beautiful bookshop and a network of supportive friends. But at the heart of her life is a hole—a place vacated by her father when he died in her childhood. So when a mysterious man named Forrester enters the shop and claims to be her father's oldest friend she jumps at the chance to find out more of her own past. But Forrester's not being free with the answers she needs. He's much more interested in telling her a story about a ruthless ganglord and a fifty-year-old betrayal. A betrayal that she will realize far too slowly, has something very much to do with her. Praised by Alan Furst as "a uniquely gifted, passionate, and powerful writer, R. J. Ellory returns with another expertly crafted thriller.
