"By a placid lake in western Maine, outside a sleepy town called Versailles, a man's body lies sprawled in a deserted cabin. The dead man was an elite D.A. from Boston, and his beat was that city's toughest neighborhood: Mission Flats. For Versailles police chief Ben Truman, investigating the murder will mean leaving his quiet, haunted home--and journeying to an alien world of hard streets and hard bargains. Ben joins a manhunt through Boston, where cops have zeroed in on a suspect. But he soon suspects the man is innocent--especially when he uncovers a secret history of murder and retribution stretching back twenty years. And as past and present collide, one thing remains certain: the most powerful revelations are yet to come"--Cover, p. [4].

Not bad at all. The writing was above average but not at all pointlessly fluffy with strained efforts to be pretty or poetic.

The plot was pretty good with plenty of likely suspects. I'm not sure if I figured it out earlier than the author thought I would, but after one particular scene it seemed pretty obvious to me whodunit since we were out of possibilities by then. Once I figured out the mystery, it seemed like the book took too long to get to the denouement, but, on the other hand, if you didn't figure out the answer, it was probably just right.

A real page-turner and a great read. I'm happy to have discovered this author.
