Book Description
 

MUSIC OF WHAT HAPPENS, THE by John Straley - FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by John Straley.

Investigator Cecil Younger lives out on the edge - of a continent, of society, and lately, it seems, of sanity. He's based in Sitka, Alaska, a place where civilization touches on a wilderness of water and ice, where a man could lose his mind in a long winter of danger and doubt. But fresh out of the psych ward, Cecil has it on medical authority that he's not crazy. The problem, aside from his history of substance abuse, is the crack on the head he took from the ex-husband of a client. The doctor has advised him to avoid stress and conflict, but Cecil's current case involves little else. His client is Priscilla DeAngelo, a childhood friend presently embroiled in the custody case from hell. Shrill, confrontational, and obsessed, Priscilla is certain a conspiracy is afoot to take her son from her - and anyone who tells her different must be in on the plot. She storms off to Juneau for a showdown with the State Senator she believes is in cahoots with her ex...and by morning Cecil's custody case has turned into a murder. No sooner is Priscilla bailed out of jail than she fires Cecil from her defense team. But Cecil, just as tenacious as his former client, is along for the ride. He's not sure what keeps him bulldogging the case - Priscilla's sister, the lost love of his teenage years his regard for truth as one of the rarest commodities on earth or the head injury - but he won't let go until he has the answers. But in this case, the truth is less likely to set him free than to get him killed....
