Perfect for readers who appreciate the novels of Dennis Lehane with deeply flawed characters struggling to walk the righteous path.

At an AA meeting, handyman and part-time investigator Jay Porter meets a recovering addict who needs his help. In the midst of another grueling northern New Hampshire winter, Amy Lupus_ younger sister, Emily, has gone missing from the Coos County Center, the newly opened rehab run by Jay_s old nemeses, Adam and Michael Lombardi. As Jay begins looking into Emily_s disappearance, he finds that all who knew Emily swear that she_s never used drugs. She_s a straight shooter and an intern at a newspaper investigating the Center and the horrendous secret hidden in it_or beneath it.

When Jay learns of a _missing_ hard drive, he is flung back to five years ago when his own junkie brother, Chris, found a hard drive belonging to Lombardi Construction. For years Jay assumed that the much-sought-after hard drive contained incriminating photos of Adam and Michael_s father, which contributed to Chris_ death. But now he believes that hard drive may have harbored a secret far more sinister, which the missing Lupus sister may have unwittingly discovered. The deeper Jay digs, the more poisoned the ground gets, and the two cases become one, yielding a toxic truth with local fallout_and far-reaching ramifications.
