Investigator Brandon Drake has carved himself out a nice, profitable, comfortable niche as a high-tech information specialist. Until Julia Hobbs rings his doorbell. Suddenly, Brandy is back in the P. I. business with a vengeance. It was supposed to have looked like a rock climbing accident. And to everyone but Brandon Drake that was exactly how it looked. And the murderer might have pulled it off if Drake hadn't been part of the investigation.
Missing husbands were not the usual kind of contract for Brandon Drake to take on, but the "damsel in distress" factor was something Brandy had never been able to resist. Especially when the lady in question was the frantic sister of an old college buddy.
From the rock walls of the beautiful Yosemite valley to the sleaziest bars in LA, from the ruthless rivalries of the computer software industry to the brinkmanship of the rock climbing world, no one knows better than Drake that the proof he will need to reopen the police case is being guarded by someone who has already killed. Someone who, without the slightest hesitation, will kill again.
This book is a terrific mystery/suspense thriller. According to the web, the next two novels in the Brandon Drake series are set for release in 2002.
