Simple (Originally $24.99)
Mike Connolly is likeable, aiming to run for governor — and he wears his considerable wealth and privilege modestly. Cassie Price, a paralegal at his family's Pittsburgh law firm, is brilliant, earnest and beloved — and can't help falling in love with Connolly. When she's found dead in the house she just purchased, suspicion falls immediately on Cal Hathaway, the neighborhood handyman who finds her body.
Detectives Coleson and McGranahan sew up the case with a confession from Hathaway just as Commander Christie returns from vacation. In spite of the physical evidence, Christie is uncertain so he reopens the investigation. Along with Colleen Greer, Artie Dolan, and John Potocki, Christie tries to substantiate Cal's confession. In the process, the police unearth secrets of politics, riches, class, and race. Determined (and sleepless), the four detectives pursue an unusual set of clues until they end up in a midnight-to-dawn chase.
Hardcover, 336 pages.
Hideout (Originally $17.99)
Jack and Ryan Rutter are riding wild in their red truck one May night. Ryan is crazy with booze and crack. Jack is trying to calm Ryan when Ryan hits and kills a young mother of two on Pittsburgh's North Side. The brothers flee north to Sugar Lake, the summer community where they vacationed as children.
Detective Colleen Greer is the first on the scene of the young woman's death. She and Commander Richard Christie, along with Christie's favorite detectives Artie Dolan and John Potocki, must trace the Rutter boys from the slimmest of leads. Nobody knows where they've gone. Nobody knows Jack is searching out a memory of a time when he was happy as a boy and that Ryan, perpetually unsettled, forever angry, is not finished wreaking vengeance on the world.
Softcover, 312 pages.
