Though it begins with the arguably overused technique of a flash-forward scene that doesn’t make sense until two-thirds through the book, what follows is an intense, taut crime story with a caustic P.I. Not to be missed by fans of straight-up hardboiled noir.

When a teenage girl goes missing, P.I. J. McNee immediately suspects her godfather, a known criminal with whom McNee has a mutual grudge. But that would make things too easy. What McNee starts investigating as a favor for a journalist friend turns into something far more complicated and deadly. (MINOTAUR, Mar., 304 pp., $24.99)
