When an anonymous caller summons Bill Habermann, P. I., to the scene of a murder, he is plunged right into the middle of a murder mystery. It seems to be tied to some mob activity that leads to control of Chicago s crucial water supply for explosive growth in the Chicagoland area. As the corpses pile up, Habermann is swept into the arms of a beautiful woman, Sharon Syracusa, the wife of original murder victim and the son of a retired mob boss. But…can Sharon be trusted? Does she have evidence linking the mob to a billing scam, as she says she does? Or is she selling Habermann downriver? The second in the Suburban P.I. series, A Pale Rain is a classic noir thriller in the style of Raymond Chandler and Dashiel Hammet, with countless twists and turns. A tightly-written, unpredictable, fast-paced mystery that explodes on page 1 and just keeps on running.
