Publisher's Summary

On the afternoon of July 30, 1975, former Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa left the parking lot of the Machus Red Fox Restaurant in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, never to be seen again. Over 200 FBI agents have been working the case in the 44 years since that day - digging up end zones, driveways, hay fields, and horse farms - and yet Hoffa’s body has never been found. 

In this story by two-time Edgar Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Steve Hamilton, Alex McKnight - the former Detroit cop and protagonist of 11 critically acclaimed novels that have sold over a million copies - is sitting at the rail in the Glasgow Inn when a local old-timer tells him an unusual story. It’s the kind of small-town mystery that won’t let Alex sleep at night, but when he goes hunting for answers, he stumbles upon the biggest surprise of his life. 

Forty-four years later, the disappearance of James Riddle Hoffa is still the most notorious open case in American crime history....

And Alex McKnight is about to solve it.

Terrific 40 year mystery

This is a terrific Standalone short story with a Compelling 40 year mystery. It starts with a bit of a shaggy dog story and continues to build at an accelerating pace. Narrator Dan John Miller is absolutely perfect.

Excellent narration and plot

I thoroughly enjoyed this short story which held my interest from the start. The narrator was perfect. The story-line was definitely intriguing—I won’t say more because it’d be a spoiler. I shall look for more work by this author.

Could have been longer

Was an entertaining short story. Wish the author would have made it longer, seems like it would’ve made a good full length novel.

At last a Steve Hamiltot / Alex McKnight story, if only a short one

A welcome return from a great artist. It was wonderful to read a real Steve Hamilton again, if a short one
