When Charlie Wolfe winds up homeless, Tony Shepherd's family takes him in. But Tony's parents have one request: No more mysteries!

The boys want to keep their word ... but someone is leaving dismembered bodies around the city and Detective Gekas is asking what they know. Soon, Tony and Charlie are caught in a labyrinth of lies and death—and not everyone is as they seem.

Can the boys escape unscathed or will someone they care about end up dead?

Where to Buy


Authors Counios and Gane have concocted an excellent piece of crime fiction, one filled with the appropriate number of red herrings and a delightful misdirection as to the serial killer’s identity. What could have been a tired trope, a pair of adolescents’ entering what is supposedly a deserted and abandoned house, becomes a truly tension-filled episode towards the novel’s conclusion.

Right from the start though you feel in safe hands as a reader. Counios and Gane know what they are doing, and you can happily allow yourself to become immersed in the story.
