Four years ago, Lew Fonesca's wife Catherine was struck and killed in a hit-and-run. Grief-stricken, he fled to Chicago and wound up in Sarasota, Florida where he's made a living as a process server. Four years on, he's still savoring his depression like fine wine, and his therapist--and sparring partner--has had enough. It's time, she tells Lew, to get on with his life. Time to go back to Chicago and find out what really happened to his wife. Lew hates to admit it, but Ann Horowitz might be right. Even if it kills him, he has to know the truth about his wife's death. So he returns to his home, his family, his friends--and a mystery. He's resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife. In doing so, he'll uncover both sweet and painful memories of his past. He'll also confront a murderer who'll not hesitate to kill again to make sure hidden secrets stay more

Review quote

Kaminsky adds all of the touches that have distinguished his books over the past thirty years...he also adds an incredibly taunt plot that keeps twisting back on itself and a genuine feel for Chicago's wonderfully ethnic neighborhoods. This is the kind of book that shows why Kaminsky has been named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America. "Mystery Scene on Always Say Goodbye" Stacked with vivid characters and plenty of local color it looks as if Lew has a real future ahead of him. "The New York Times Book Review on Vengeance " Kaminsky's sense of place is faultless he grabs readers and takes them on a memorably tumultuous ride of violent dips and turns. "Publishers Weekly (starred) on Vengeance ""show more
