A detective who has a lot of secrets that he keeps from everyone. His present case deals with an apparent suicide that the family believes was not a suicide. During his investigation he turns up an internet porn ring that leads him to the big city and the Mafia. The solution to the case is a surprise. The outcome is that he is going to open up more to those that he loves.

A very interesting and fast read. I look forward to more of Ray Crusafi mysteries. ( )

Suicide? Macy doesn't think her mother (an escort) would commit suicide. So, she hires Ray to find out what really happened.

I did enjoy reading. It was a fast read and interesting. I do hope the author reveals more of Ray in future books. ( )

A decent fast paced, sometimes violent, private detective book. I enjoyed Ray even though he is a violent (at times) person with an unknown past.

There are smatterings of humor that help the story. There are some grammatical and misspellings that do not help. Overall this is a good read for mystery fans. The story is interesting and I will probably read more in the series. ( )

Liked the book very much. It is a quick read and holds your interest. There are a few grammatical/spelling errors, and they grated on my nerves because that is how I am! The book also left a lot of questions unanswered, but I guess the author was saving those for the rest of the series. I can understand that. But it would have been better if the book had at least covered who attempted to get Ray killed - it definitely was not Mike. Or if Ray had at least started wondering about that. It was surprising that Ray did not give that matter any more thought - not even when he saw the "ghosts" from his past show up on his street. Given how paranoid he was, it would be the most logical thing for him to worry about. Nevertheless, I would definitely like to read the next Ray Crusafi mystery. ( )

Received this book through member giveaway and really enjoyed it. Ray Crusafi is an old school private investigator (a bit of a cross between Sam Spade and Mike Hammer) with a tendancy toward physical violence. Ray us a bit down on his luck and takes a case where the client is the daughter of a prostitute who dies of an apparent suicide. The daughter is convinced it is murder and hires Ray to prove it and find the killer. It was a fast read with a strong ending. The real interesting part of this novel is that you don't know whether to like or hate the main character. He has a questionable past that appears to involve the mob but you really don't get the whole story. Definitely worth the read. ( )
