"DAZZLINGLY INGENIOUS, JANE HADDAM'S...NOVELS PROVIDE STYLE, HUMOR AND PHILOSOPHY BLENDED WITH GORE GALORE--THEY'RE REAL SPELLBINDERS, SPARKINGLY WRITTEN AND SMASHINGLY PLOTTED." --The Drood Review of Mystery

Media mogul Charles van Straadt could have picked a better time for an unannounced call on the uptown health-care center he supported. A gang war rages across Harlem, making for wall-to-wall stretchers in the emergency room, and photos of the center's saintly director have been splashed all over the front pages after a vice charge arrest. It was an inconvenient time to drop in...and an even worse time to drop dead.

Former FBI agent Gregor Demarkian is called in to investigate van Straadt's messy demise. Was it a premature Father's Day gift from one of the millionaire's grandchildren, hoping to head off a rumored change in the old man's will? Did the clinic director have a falling out with his prickly, uptight patron? Or did the smiling nun with a will of steel send Charlie to his Heavenly Father? Soon Demarkian has a Father's Day gift of his own, even more unwanted than a gaudy tie...another corpse.
