Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A socko opening ushers in a workmanlike novel in PI Leo Haggerty's fifth outing (after Embrace the Wolf ). Despite the plea of girlfriend Samantha, who is anxious to talk with him about something, Haggerty works late to help out bounty-hunter Arnie Kendall. But the fugitive they apprehend hides a key in Kendall's car, leading to a break-in and to Samantha's brutal rape at Haggerty's house. Only at the hospital does Haggerty learn that Samantha had in fact been pregnant, and that the baby has now been lost. This is the story's most affecting moment; it is followed immediately by Kendall's murder. Understandably, Haggerty resolves to avenge the tragedies himself and does not intend to share any information with the police. He finds the key, and comes into possession of a floppy disk that contains data involving an experimental AIDS remedy. Tracking down the owner of the disk takes up the rest of the tale and, as in any real-life investigation, the work is tedious. A more serious problem is Haggerty's two-dimensional character. As a result, Shutz's denouement, and its ostensibly meaningful epilogue, ring flat.

From Library Journal

Washington, D.C., private detective Leo Haggerty ( The Things We Do for Love , Embrace the Wolf , etc.) becomes desperately obsessed with revenge after a hired psychopath trashes his house, rapes his live-in love, and murders his best friend. Haggerty soon learns that the murderer is looking for a missing computer disk worth millions to its unscrupulous owners. Without much thought of emotional consequences, Haggerty single-mindedly pursues a showdown. Strongly and narrowly focused, this successful series addition runs swiftly and smoothly to a touching conclusion.
