Overview
Introducing homicide detective Daniel Turner and his troubled friend 'BB' in the first of this atmospheric crime noir series.

Summoned by his old friend, homicide detective Daniel Turner, to identify the trussed-up, naked body of a woman, found wrapped in cellophane amongst a pile of garbage on Blue Avenue, a down-at-heel area of Jacksonville, Florida, businessman William Byrd or 'BB' is in for a shock. He recognises the dead woman as Belinda Mabry, the girl with whom he spent an intense and passionate summer twenty-five years before. What's more, as Daniel informs him, she's the third victim to have met such a hideously gruesome end. Determined to find out what happened to Belinda Mabry and where she'd been for the past twenty-five years, BB must revisit his own troubled past - and discover more than he ever really wanted to know about the woman he once loved. But his investigations are causing serious ripples amongst prominent members of the local community. Has BB found himself on a road of no return?

Noir fiction doesn’t get much darker than Wiley’s thriller introducing police detective Daniel Turner, who is largely an observer in his first outing. Disreputable Jacksonville, Fla., businessman William “BB” Byrd and his casually brutal cohort, Charles, pursue a serial killer who has just murdered Belinda Mabry, the woman who was BB’s first lover 25 years earlier. Even if it means further alienating his own precariously balanced family, BB can’t stop interrogating Jacksonville’s sleaziest pimps, prostitutes, and politicians to find out what happened to Belinda in life and death. Unpleasant secrets keep surfacing, sometimes in the investigation but also in the investigators, and Wiley (A Bad Night’s Sleep) is extremely good at creating an atmosphere of menacing dread as BB learns more about the dead woman and himself. New shocks occur all the way to the last page—and continue as readers reflect on what they’ve just witnessed. Agent: Philip Spitzer, Philip G. Spitzer Literary Agency. (Dec.)
