After I'm Gone
Rather than face prison time, gambling boss Felix Brewer goes on the lam in 1976, leaving behind his wife, Bambi, his three daughters, and his mistress, ex-stripper Julie Saxony. Ten years later, Julie disappears. Everyone suspects she joined Felix--until her body is discovered in 2001 in a park near Bambi’s childhood home. Investigating cold cases for some extra cash, retired Baltimore detective Roberto “Sandy” Sanchez finds himself untangling a web of greed, jealousy, and deceit. Lippman (And When She Was Good, 2012) returns with an enticing stand-alone.
