DescriptionThree years ago, Dan Champion uncovered a criminal syndicate run by a kingpin known only as the Fat Woman. Champion infiltrated her world of murder, obsession, and perversity, but the case also broke him. He began hallucinating and taking drugs. Now, Champion is a small-town detective, hoping the ghosts and hallucinations are finally behind him. Then one night he is called to examine the body of a woman who has washed ashore. To his surprise, he recognizes the woman as Samantha, someone he dreamed about during his dark period--a woman who doesn't exist. Soon Champion is haunted by a team of expert killers who want to make sure he never finds the truth. The ghosts of the dead are all around him, and Champion has to find out who murdered them, or risk becoming one himself.

"If you haven't read Andrew Klavan, you're in for a treat. He tells vivid stories with a conversational style that's deceptively simple but does not waste a word."--Charlotte Observer "Evokes the gritty classics of Cornell Woolrich and Jim Thompson while spinning its own brand of hard-boiled psychological suspense. Among its other distinctions, this book gives us a detective who is tough enough to outlast the most bizarre encounters but isn't too tough to be gripped with fear."--Kirkus Reviews "Taut, frightening . . . The edgy story complements a lead character whose fragile memory can't always separate the real from the imaginary."--Publishers Weekly "Dark, violent, seasoned with wit and fueled by anger."--Books and Culture "Klavan is worthy to be mentioned with Keith Ablow, Jonathan Kellerman, Andrew Vachss, James Patterson, and even Stephen King."--Huntington News
