Description

Former private investigator Sean Chercover is back with Trigger City after taking the world of crime fiction by storm with his debut novel, Big City, Bad Blood. Big City earned a slew of Award nominations--for the Barry and Anthony Awards, among others--and won the Shamus, Gumshoe, Crimespree, and Lovey Awards. His second gritty, suspenseful winner recalls the best of Dennis Lehane and Robert Crais and it lifts Chercover's rapidly rising star into the stratosphere. Trigger City is a Dilys Award winner, a Macavity Award nominee, and it prompted the Chicago Tribune to praise Sean Chercover as "the Ross Macdonald of his time."

Back cover copy

The facts:

A lonely woman was murdered by her disturbed coworker.

The police have investigated. The case is closed.

But facts are not truth.

A routine investigation of an open-and-shut case is just what PI Ray Dudgeon needs to recover from the physical and emotional consequences of confronting the Chicago Outfit--until "routine" spirals out of control. The victim was no quiet, unassuming, unlucky single woman; she lived a double life in the shadowy realm of covert intelligence . . . and she died for the truth. Suddenly, Ray's ensnared in a conspiracy of darkness that weaves its way through the very fabric of the nation, and in grave danger of becoming collateral damage in America's war on terror. And his greatest enemy may be himself.
