Mason Bittner was arguably the best country singer of his time, respected and loved by music fans across all genres. Then he lost everything. Disgraced and mostly forgotten, Bittner was living in his car and playing music for meager wages-until he was murdered.
Mason's daughter, Grace, is haunted by his memory, the loss of her childhood-and worst of all-her harsh treatment of him when he needed her most. She wants nothing more than to clear his name. When Grace turns to a pair of unconventional private investigators for help, she gets far more than she expected. Using their unique style of personal intimidation and shady maneuvering, John Travers and Wally Karpinski address the unconscionable destruction of a good man. Questions abound, but answers are elusive. Meanwhile, Grace struggles to come to terms with her own extraordinary musical talent in the face of terrible pain.
In this suspenseful thriller, two unusual PIs help a young woman seeking to restore the legacy of her murdered father and accept the musical gift she possesses.
C. Carl Roberts is the author of three other Travers and Karpinski novels: Playing God, Identity, and Abreaction. He currently lives in Northern California.
