Killer on Argyle Street
A Paul Whelan Mystery
Paul Whelan Mysteries, #4
“This series is a small treasure.” —BOOKLIST
Chicago Private Investigator Paul Whelan takes the case when an elderly woman asks him to look into the disappearance of Tony Blanchard, a young man she’d taken in after his parents died. Instead, Whelan discovers a string of murders, all tied to a car-theft ring.
All the evidence suggests that Tony is dead as well, but Whelan keeps digging until he finds himself surrounded by a dangerous maze of silent witnesses, crooked cops, and people willing to kill to keep the truth from surfacing. When a friend from Whelan’s past emerges—a friend Whelan thought long dead—his investigation takes a dangerous turn; one that brings him no closer to Tony, and a lot closer to his own demise.
