Fan favorite–and Mac Lib favorite–private detective Nils Shapiro is back in Matt Goldman’s latest standalone thriller, THE SHALLOWS.
A prominent lawyer is found dead, tied to his own dock and everyone wants our favorite PI Nils to protect them from suspicion: The unfaithful widow. Her artist boyfriend. The lawyer’s firm. A polarizing congressional candidate. A rudderless suburban police department. Even the FBI.
Praise for THE SHALLOWS:
“Goldman seasons the complicated puzzle with healthy doses of dry wit and meaningful secondary stories for his characters. Hopefully, Nils and company will return soon.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Fans of classic hard-boiled crime novels of the 1930s and 1940s will appreciate Nils’s intelligence and likable coworkers, who star in a novel that is timely, not old-fashioned, and featuring a riveting story.”–Library Journal, starred review (Pick of the Month)
