A Jay Porter novel.
Slow, dragged out plot.
A lot of time is invested in character development and rolling out the plot.
While is provides very detailed story background, it does nothing to engage the reader.
At an AA meeting, handyman and part-time investigator Jay Porter meets a recovering addict who needs his help to locate a missing girl. In the process he discovers incriminating evidence to Lombardi Construction, which links sinister secrets. The deeper Jay digs, the more poisoned the ground gets, and the two cases become one, yielding a toxic truth with local fallout—and far-reaching ramifications..
Generally the book description is better than the book.
