2015 Edgar Award Nominee Justin Chase is the perfect barkeep tending bar as he lives his life in a state of Zen serenity At least until Birdie Grackle a yellow haired foul mouthed alcoholic from Texas walks into his bar orders a Mojito and makes a startling confession Six years ago Justins life was ripped apart when he discovered his mothers bludgeoned corpse in the foyer of the family home Now Justins father is serving a life sentence and Justin after a stint in an asylum drowns his emotions in a pool of inner peace But when Birdie Grackle claims to be the hit man who murdered Justins mother for the money Justin is hurled back to the emotions the past and most frightening of all the father he tried to leave behind Who hired Birdie Grackle to kill Justins mother Was it Annie Overmeyer the sexy young woman with whom Justins father had been having an affair Was it Justins brother who took advantage of his fathers conviction to take control of the family business Was it someone from his mothers secret life the shocking details of which Justin is only learning now Or was it maybe his imprisoned father to whom Justin is suddenly growing dangerously close For all of Justins efforts to banish emotion and attachment from his life this searing journey into his past affects him in ways he could never have anticipated As Justin pieces together the truth a merciless killing machine begins stalking him leaving a trail of dead in his wake Someone wants to bury the truth and maybe Justin too As the terror closes in Justin had better find some answers quick because the stakes have been raisedhis life is on the line and murder is just not Zen
