Mack Mercy never turns down a case.
When his latest office manager quits, Mack jumps at the chance to avoid doing the one thing he needs to do: hire a replacement at Capitol Cases, the PI firm he’s owned for twenty years.
Glen Pulaski, a new client, has an easy task for Mack, and the perfect diversion to his hiring woes: find out if Glen's wife is having an affair.
But when Mack goes to the Pulaski home to get more information from Glen, he finds the man that hired him dead on arrival. All signs point to an accidental death, but Mack isn’t so sure. Despite the lack of evidence, he digs in…and keeps digging, even when there is nothing to suggest foul play.
Because there is one thing Mack Mercy has learned after two decades of private investigator work.
Nothing is ever as it seems.
