Image of True Detectives: A Novel

Kellerman's usual protagonists become secondary players as he shifts his focus
to the estranged brothers first featured in last year's Bones. The differences between the pair are stark, although both excel
at detective work. Kellerman not only explores the dark events surrounding a young woman's disappearance but also the evolution of the half-siblings' relationship. Gritty and filled with emotional land mines, this tale of psychological suspense packs quite a punch.

Although they share a mother, more than just race separates brothers Aaron Fox and Moses Reed. Both have worked the LAPD beat, but these days Aaron makes his living as a high-class P.I. When a valued client asks Aaron to investigate the disappearance of the 20-year-old daughter of one of his employees, it puts him in contact with Moses, to whom the cold case belongs. To find missing Caitlin Frostig, the brothers must set aside hostility and combine their talents and resources. It doesn't take long for this case to head into very dark waters.
