A Place in the Wind (A Jimmy Vega Mystery #4) (Mass Market)
“A tremendous talent.”—Lee Child A blond-haired, blue-eyed teenager from a prominent family vanishes after teaching English to a group of immigrants. Suspicion falls on the men she was tutoring, inflaming tensions in the close-knit, picturesque community of Lake Holly, NY. For Detective Jimmy Vega, more is at stake than just keeping the peace. His girlfriend, Adele, heads the community center where the girl was last seen. Now all she’s worked for is at risk. After a murder suspect’s surrender goes horribly wrong, Vega gets tossed into a grunt detail that quickly turns into a political minefield. A powerful, charismatic leader will stop at nothing to cleave the town in two. But Vega uncovers even darker forces at play. And no matter which way he turns, every step could cost him his job, his town, his family—even his life. Acclaim for Suzanne Chazin and Her Novels “Chazin holds the reader from beginning to end.”—Suspense Magazine “Top-notch storytelling, appealing characters, and a timely controversy guarantee energetic book discussions.”—Booklist “Nail-biting . . . A tense page-turner.”—Publishers Weekly
