Description

Private investigator John March is hired to find missing Wall Street analyst Gregory Danes. Once ubiquitous on television, Danes's star went into steep decline along with the stock market; he's best known now for his volatile temper and his obsession with restoring his tattered reputation. His ex-wife wants to know why the alimony checks have stopped, but what seems to be a straightforward missing persons case becomes something much more deadly. March unearths a rat's nest of family strife and business betrayals. And, March discovers, he isn't alone in his hunt for the missing man. Now his investigation takes on a terrifying urgency as it leads him through the corrupt corridors of white-collar crime and into the more intricate maze of the human heart.

      • content: Nick Sullivan does wonders with Shamus Award-winning author Peter Spiegelman's second John March adventure. Although Spiegelman's heavy-handed prose constantly interrupts Sullivan's narrative flow, Sullivan manages to keep things lively. March, a P.I. with ties to investment banking, is hired to find a stock analyst who has disappeared. March's investigation brings him into the world of insider trading, secretive millionaires, and the Russian mob. Sullivan's performance offers a variety of spot-on character sketches, and his expressiveness during an intense climax almost makes up for the novel's weaker spots. Thanks to Nick Sullivan's energetic delivery, listeners will find much to like in this financial thriller. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from May 30, 2005
        Shamus-winner Spiegelman's intricate, intelligent second thriller to feature all-too-human New York PI John March (after 2003's Black Maps
        ) explores skulduggery in the world of high finance. Nina Sachs, a high-strung Brooklyn artist, hires March to find her missing ex-husband, Gregory Danes, an arrogant stock analyst who became a media star during the last bull market. Sachs hates Danes, but he's the father of their teenage son and her primary money supply (alimony, child support). March uncovers a huge list of potential enemies: investors burned by Danes, a vindictive ex-mistress, a scary Russian mobster and a reclusive hedge fund manager. That someone else is also looking for Danes—someone with the resources to surveil March, his girlfriend and his extended family—adds to the suspense. Spiegelman makes all the details ring true, and his fine prose can be lyrical (a spring rain gives Manhattan "a scrubbed, surprised look, like a drunk, waking up sober and in his own bed for the first time in a long time"). While the determined March has the requisite grit, he is also appealingly vulnerable and introspective. If it's hard to care too much about the victim, Spiegelman makes the search extremely compelling. Agent, Denise Marcil.
