From the Back Cover
Once Kyle Byrne had promise. But he opted for a life of slack--drinking too much, playing too much Xbox, sleeping with the wrong type of women. He will, however, always attend the burial services of friends of his late father, a prominent Philadelphia lawyer. It's his only connection to the parent he barely knew, yet whose passing still casts a shadow on his heart.
But when his dad's former law partner is murdered and the cops start asking Kyle uncomfortable questions, he's forced to confront head-on the tragedies and self-deceptions that form the fabric of his existence. Suddenly, Kyle wants the real truth about his father's death--and his search is leading him to high, dark, and very dangerous places.
They say "be careful what you wish for," and Kyle should keep that in mind--because his wish is about to come true . . . with a vengeance.

He has not strayed too far,however.All the elements of the VC novels are still there-Philly;seedy characters;long-ago events influencing the present; corruption; father issues;interesting women;strange-ish side characters;and something rotten at the heart of it all.The main character could be VC,and shares many traits with him.He stumbles across an old scandal that has resonance today as the original participants are on the verge of important things.The scandal threatens to come back to life,as long ago documents are found and pursued by various parties.Some want to destroy the docs;some want to expose the scandal;some want to be paid off.And someone wants to tie up all the loose ends permanently.
A satisfying read,but I felt that Lashner again, dashed this off,and did not delve as deeply as he could have into the stories of some of the characters.In the older VC novels,the stories were always enriched by fuller development of the strange and wonderful characters VC ran into.
