Publisher's Summary

In the second installment of the suspense-filled series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ian K. Smith, an ex-cop turned private investigator seeks to fight corruption on the streets of Chicago.

A Cadillac, a pistol, and a corpse make for another morning in Chicago. The body belongs to Walter Griffin, a prominent Black Chicagoan insider hailing from the city’s West Side. He ascended to the upper echelons of the mayor’s office only to meet his end in a watery grave at Wolf Point. Forensics finds his prints on the gun; it’s ruled a suicide. 

But grizzled private investigator Ashe Cayne knows better.

Griffin’s children plead with a reluctant Ashe to hunt their father’s killer. They know their dad wouldn’t have taken his own life without a goodbye. And Ashe knows this town’s dark secrets often mean murder is not too far away.

Ashe decides to take on the case and navigate a city rotting with corruption, racial tensions, and sketchy backroom deals. On the bleak streets of Chicago, it’s every man for himself - and that makes everyone a suspect.

Critic Reviews

 “[Amir] Abdullah's narration is perfectly matched to this gritty mystery. His characterizations are particularly strong as he uses authentic-sounding accents to differentiate the wide cast of characters ranging from Russian gangsters to social elites. He creates a likable, dogged detective in Ashe, and his spot-on timing keeps the plot moving.” (AudioFile Magazine)

“Smith’s love of Chicago is palpable in his rich depictions of its diversity, vitality, and unique pockets.... A brisk and twisty whodunit with a motley cast that includes the city of big shoulders.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Smith’s entertaining sequel to 2020’s The Unspoken.... This is smart, smooth escapism. Readers will hope Cayne will be back soon.” (Publishers Weekly)

An excellent novel with great anticipation of what is coming next!

Dr. Ian Smith has proven to be an excellent novelist along with his other professional talents. This was one of the best novels I have listened to in a very long time. Not a boring moment ever. It would be good if it can be made into a movie! Can’t wait to listen to his next novel already downloaded. Congratulations Dr. Smith.

Ashe's Coming of Age.

Gets better as you read to the conclusion. Good work on character development by Dr Ian Smith. Further write will move from good to very good. Audible version very good immersion version reads well. Looking for more work from Smith. His As he character has a future.

LIKED THE UNSPOKEN - LOVED WOLF POINT

I really enjoyed the Ashe Cayne character ‘s ability to smoothly move thru all strata of Chicago life. He is both smart ( as in street smart) and clever (as in very well read). The story was well paced and interesting. I’m looking forward to another Ashe Cayne mystery!

A great story

I was gripped by this book, a great story that took you long a discovery path to reveal more as the story unfolded. I enjoyed this book/ Audio. It was funny, had a great story, and all I kept thinking about was it would make an excellent movie. I could picture it. I loved how the orator used the voices to portray the different characters in the story, letting you embellish it with your imagination.

It is the second audiobook I have listed from Dr Ian Smith, and I have enjoyed them both. Let's hope there are more in the works from him.
