    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Judge Laura Porter fiercely guarded her privacy, and never more so than during her long-running--and long in the past--affair with disgraced quarterback-turned-private investigator Andy Hayes. Now she's missing, disappeared just hours after she calls Andy out of the blue explaining she's in trouble and needs his help. A trail of clues leads Andy to a central Ohio swamp whose future lies in the judge's hands as she weighs a lawsuit pitting environmentalists against developers. Soon Hayes encounters the case of another missing person, a young man who vanished without a trace in a different swamp two counties away. As he looks for links between the two disappearances, Hayes is led from Columbus to Cleveland, unearthing a history of secrets and betrayals threatening not just the judge but her family as well.Along the way, Hayes is forced to confront a newly strained relationship with his oldest son, now a budding football star himself, and revisit his tumultuous days as a Cleveland Browns quarterback and the gridiron failures that haunt him to this day. In partnership with a female cop on her own quest for justice, Hayes rushes to find the judge, and the truth, before it's too late"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1

Readers who love old-fashioned detective novels will be in hog heaven as they tear into Welsh-Huggins' latest adventure featuring Andy Hayes, the former Cleveland Browns quarterback who spent time in the slammer for point-shaving and is trying now to establish himself as an investigator. Clues. Conversations in code. Cryptic one-liners. Mysterious phone calls. Strange lights and noises. Torn bits of paper. Finally, deductive sparks fly, and it's almost a downer when we understand the heart of the mystery: a tough judge, Laura Porter, with a shady past, which includes a long-ago affair with Andy, has been kidnapped, and it's up to Andy to rescue her. The villainy has a been-there-before look: dastardly developers are seeking control of protected marshland, and kidnapping the judge, who is set to rule on a suit environmentalists have brought against the project, is just the beginning. The bad guys are threatening to expose the fraud that her entire luminous career is built on. There's a little less of Andy's glib humor here than in The Hunt (2017), but readers will lap up the thrill of the chase. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2019 January #4

At the start of Welsh-Huggins's intriguing sixth Andy Hayes mystery (after 2018's The Third Brother), Judge Laura Porter, for whom the Columbus, Ohio, PI once did security work after Porter was threatened by a convict's relative, shows up at his house. Five years earlier, their professional relationship turned intimate, but Porter's refusal to be seen with Hayes in public caused him to break up with her. Porter now needs his help, but before she can be specific about the trouble she's in, she receives a call on her cell that prompts her to rush off. When Porter doesn't call Hayes back and fails to show up for work, Hayes goes looking for her, without success. A slip of paper concealed in a law dictionary leads him to an undeveloped plot of land that was the subject of a lawsuit assigned to Porter, and an attack by a knife-wielding thug when he goes there convinces Hayes that he's on the right track. Fans of Robert B. Parker's Jesse Stone books will be pleased. (Apr.)
