A corporate executive vanishes without a trace. His domineering boss wants him back in the office, ASAP.
Did Karl Larsson run off with a mistress? Was he kidnapped? Or had he just walked out once and for all on a life of debt and struggle?
The deeper Freddy Ferguson digs into this one, the less it makes sense. The statements from Larsson's long-suffering wife, from the stoner security guard who was the last to see the man alive, and from the respected reporter known for having the inside scoop just don't add up.
Where is the truth in this most perplexing of cases? Maybe in a slip of the tongue by an arrogant man, or in a dopesick junkie's account of a seemingly random attack. Maybe in the pocket of a man who stalks without fear of being seen, or in the multimillion-dollar transactions of an anonymous shell company.
One thing's for sure, Freddie needs to crack this case before he becomes its next victim.
"Diamond crafts an absorbing plot and surprises with well-placed curveballs that will have you guessing what's coming next with each page turn. But the well-fleshed-out characters are the highlight of the book for me. Freddy is a complex protagonist with inner conflict and layers to peel away beneath his outer persona." -- Pikasho Deka, Readers' Favorite
"[A]nother strong entry from this author in the detective subgenre... The author gives readers who are new to the series enough details to understand who Freddy is, where he got his skills, and what motivates him. Deftly done. 32 Minutes is a tricky whodunit written in a brisk, straightforward style, peopled with plausible and quirky characters that readers can root for against deplorable bad guys." -- Carolyn Haley, The Feathered Quill
