The second in the brilliant Tres Navarre series by the author of the Percy Jackson books
Tres Navarre has just ten hours before he picks up his private investigator license. On a routine surveillance job, his subject is killed by a gunshot, and suddenly his chances of becoming an official P.I. look like going up in smoke.
The victim is Julie Kearnes, a fiddle player who had allegedly stolen the demo tape of an in-demand up-and-coming singer at the centre of a tussle between two agents, one a ruthless manipulator, the other newly vanished. There's a score to be settled, and Tres isn't going to come out second.
