Summary
Willie Black, a reporter who<U+2019>s about as close to washed up as a guy can get while still being employed, stumbles onto the story of his career when a young woman<U+2019>s decapitated body is discovered, and Willie, unlike nearly everyone else involved in the case, doesn<U+2019>t believe that the man arrested for the crime is the killer. Owen, whose first book, 1994<U+2019>s Littlejohn, may also be his most well known, is a careful, precise writer, creating characters so real that we have to keep reminding ourselves they<U+2019>re fictional, and stories so haunting that they stay with the reader long after the books are back on the shelf. As usual, his latest has a stellar cast: down-and-almost-out Willie; shifty local cop (and Willie<U+2019>s antagonist) David Junior Shiflett; the dead girl<U+2019>s father, who receives his daughter<U+2019>s head in a UPS box; Martin Fell, the accused killer (whose name, not to put too fine a point on it, suggests he might be a fall guy)
