reviewed Prove The Nameless (Owen Keane, Bk 5) on
Owen Keane--Atlantic City copy editor, avocational private eye, and searcher after truth--makes his fourth appearance since his Edgar-nominated debut in Deadstick (1991). After tinkering with a 20-years-later newspaper feature on a local mass murder, Owen is put in touch with the crime's sole survivor: a college student still haunted by the slaughter of her parents and siblings. He begins to interview those concerned with the unsolved crime: frustrated cops, retired and still on the job; a Mob-linked widow whose husband, now dead, was implicated in the case; an exploitative cult leader turned self-help entrepreneur; a guilt- ridden neighbor. And then there's the young reporter who recapped the case and who challenges Owen to an investigative contest that ends in a sexual encounter. Throughout the search--which eventually loses him his job--Owen ruminates on past experiences and the nature of existence with an ex-seminarian solemnity that's his trademark

Working for an Atlantic City newspaper, Owen Keane is intrigued by the unsolved murder of a local prominent family-even more so when the sole survivor, a baby at the time of the incident, asks him to help answer the question: Why was she spared?

With his talent for uncovering murky pasts, Owen, ex-seminarian turned seeked of lost souls, start digging. But like many truths, the one he uncovers he been distorted by the human condition-by altered indentities and secret guilt.

Now in confronting a killer, he must also face himself-and the myriad fears locked in the hearts of those trying to prove the nameless... and understand themselves.
