No matter what Maggie Brown says, he's sure Matt is his son, and a boy should kw his father. After their first confrontation, Maggie should have run. She should have hidden her child. But she underestimated the man who was once her lover. With self-righteous determination, Nadal goes to her house. He demands to spend time with the boy. When she refuses, he reaches for a knife. By the time homicide detective Richard Christie arrives on the scene, all that remains of Maggie Brown is a bloodstain on the floor. The killer has vanished, and Matt is too scared to remember anything but his mother's fear. As Christie looks for the killer and Maggie's friends fight to keep Matt out of the hands of Child Services, Nadal watches the news and waits. A boy should be with his father. He's going to get his son. From the Edgar Award-minated author of <i>Simple</i> and <i>Hideout</i>, this suspenseful tale with plenty of hometown flavor and characters worthy of investment is a gritty tale of crime and justice (<i>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</i>).<i> Entertainment Weekly</i> raves, If anyone's writing better police thrillers than George, I don't kw who it is, while George Pelecas says, I look forward to reading anything Kathleen George writes.
