Whisper Ridge is a multi-million-dollar piece of architectural majesty that once housed the beginnings of Alexandra Sanabria's unique program for parolled murderers. Uninhabited for twelve years, the home still stands as a strange monument to dangerous secrets. Private investigator Lincoln Perry's first involvement with the house and its legacy comes when Parker Harrison, a convicted killer and former parolee at Whisper Ridge, asks him to find Alexandra, who disappeared with her husband after the failure of the parolee program. Then Perry discovers that skeletal remains of Alexandra's husband were discovered at the same time Harrison asked Perry to try and locate her. With the police investigation active again and decade-old threats circling, Perry is confronted with a sordid family mystery that will challenge both his abilities as a detective and his commitment to that calling.

Publishers Weekly, 2009-06-22 Edgar-finalist Koryta spins a dark tale of broken dreams and second chances in his stunning fourth mystery to feature Cleveland, Ohio, PI Lincoln Perry (after 2008's A Welcome Grave). When Perry starts receiving letters from convicted murder Parker Harrison, he ignores them until the man shows up in his office. Twelve years earlier, the then recently paroled Harrison worked for Alexandra and Joshua Cantrell, a couple who ran a rehabilitation program for violent offenders. Then they disappeared, and Harrison wants Perry's help in tracking down Alexandra. Suspicious why Harrison waited so long, Perry discovers that Joshua's bones were recently unearthed in Pennsylvania. Ken Merriman, a Pittsburgh PI, soon arrives in Cleveland, asking Perry for help finding out who killed Joshua. That Alexandria's brother heads one of Cleveland's most notorious mob families complicates matters. Perry has to reconsider everything he thought he knew about right, wrong and everything in between.
