I've just started reading Wm Coughlin's books and I love the way he writes. I especially like the Charley Sloan character and this was an exceptionally good book. Lots of suspense right up to the very end. It was soooo good that I read it in one day!
This author was much revered by the likes of Scott Turow and William Caunitz. He had a loyal following addicted to his next book. This is his last however, which he finished just before his death.

Charlie Sloan, ace lawyer and recovering alcoholic, is back on the scene. Sloan's client is Detroit's deputy police chief, who is charged with stealing $1 million from a secret slush fund to pay off drug informants. Charlie's girlfriend, police detective Sue Gillis, is pressing Charlie to commit to a new stage in their relationship, but they find themselves on opposite sides of the fence in the hunt for a serial killer who suffocates young children and lays them out like angels in the snow, encased in plastic sheeting. And someone in the mayor's office has bugged Charlie's office.

In a rural area outside of Detroit, bodies have been found in the snow. One after another. Neatly washed,wrapped in plastic. Their killer has laid out like sleeping . All of them so very young.
You find it's a real page turner.
This is possibly the most confusing book I have ever read. Too many things going on at one time and hard to keep track of them all. I've never known a lawyer to have so many cases going at the one time and all of them connected to each other. It is a good mystery but just too hard to keep up with the plot.
One in the Charley Sloan series - really like this author!
