Product description

Review

"Sharp wit, complex characters, and masterful plotting makes Goldman a writer to watch. Irreverent and insightful, private detective Nils Shapiro is sure to become a fan favorite." --Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

"A perfect blend of light touch and dark story--I want more of Nils Shapiro." --Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author

"Goldman brings the heat with a moody and wry Midwest elegy. A modern, clever voice in these most cynical of times." --Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author

"A clever mystery that starts with a unique crime scene, mixes in a package of red herrings, and tops off the plot with Nils Shapiro, a private eye who is as interesting as his name." --Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author

"Gotta love it: Spade, Spenser, and now Shapiro. The brilliant Matt Goldman has written the perfect PI novel--smart, spare, sarcastic, and completely heartbreaking." --Hank Phillippi Ryan Anthony, Agatha, and Mary Higgins Clark award wining author

"Blends his storytelling with irreverent humor. His tough yet vulnerable PI, evocative Minneapolis setting, and clever plot, which features a distinctive crime scene and multiple red herrings, will engage and intrigue." --Library Journal, starred review

"With his wry, observant eye and quick wit, plus a pressing need to follow the truth into dark, uncharted places, Shap is a more optimistic version of Ross MacDonald's Lew Archer. Readers will look forward to his next investigative adventure." --Publishers Weekly

"Clever and compelling...Goldman's experience as a stand-up comic, playwright, and TV writer show to advantage in this first novel's wit, the story's pace, and his hero's charm." --Booklist
