A new Chief Novak novel in the acclaimed series set in the Pittsburgh area:
Police Chief Karol Novak’s planned retirement is sidetracked when a dying man’s wish draws him into investigating the unsolved murder of a young woman two decades before. As the investigation unfolds, Novak and his team discover a similar unsolved murder.
Are the two deaths related or are they the work of a serial killer? While they work to answer these questions, this small, undermanned police force must also find a three-year-old child who has disappeared without a trace.

The ending of this book blew me away. I liked the insights into Pittsburgh:. The story was engaging and held my interest. It reminded me in parts of an American Bernie Gunther (I don’t use that compatison lightly. You don’t need to have read previous books to enjoy this, but you would get more out of the book. I would be interested to see where the author goes with this chatacter next.
A plot involving three seemingly independent cases for a small local police unit, which in its day to day operations are facing the entire pallet of issues related to racial problems, budget issues, local politics and high ego’s. while trying to solve several serious cases simultaneously.
The plot is great with a meanngful relation to the local Pittsburg society., definitely a learning experience for many. Also in the context of the actual situation vis a vis racial issues with police work.
Easily read without too many trivial parts that usually are omitted when reading this genre. The descriptions of ambiance and locations are good, not to detailed and unnecessary long.
