Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassins and The Book of Spies says, “Atmospheric and dark, In Solo Time  rivets you with live jazz, memorable characters, and a series of murders that point to Big Politics played by the best—Boston’s cut-throat wealthy. From police work to tangled love affairs, this killer of a reading ride will entertain and haunt you.”
