Clay Wolfe is a former Boston homicide detective who has left the police department to return home to Maine to care for his elderly grandfather and open a private detective agency. Haunted by being orphaned at an early age, and jaded by the corruption of the big city, Clay is happy to hit pause and investigate minor crimes. When he is hired to find out who sold the drugs that killed a six-month-old baby girl, he has no idea of the evil that he is going to uncover in the underbelly of his hometown. Wolfe Trap is a thrilling ride set in a small Maine town with rich characters and shocking plot twists that will keep the reader rapt until the final pages.

Review quote

"Set on the midcoast of Maine, Wolfe Trap introduces us to an eccentric and interesting cast of characters in this first installment in the Port Essex Mystery series. This gripping plot moves with lightning speed until its explosive and thrilling conclusion. Here we have murder, drug-smuggling lobstermen, art theft, and budding romance. Despite our hero's hard-drinking and prolific womanizing, Clay Wolfe is a sympathetic and likable character. Cost's jam-packed plot should appeal to all lovers of private detective fiction. I eagerly look forward to next book in this series."

-Joseph Souza, acclaimed author of The Perfect Daughter
