A Thomas Black Mystery by the Shamus-Award-Winning author of "The Rainy City."

The menacing phone calls from a maniacally laughing stranger haunt Seattle private eye Thomas Black as he lies partially paralyzed in the hospital, afflicted with memory loss. Betrayed by his body and his mind, Black struggles to piece together the shards of the investigation that nearly killed him before the owner of the maniacal laugh can return to finish the job.

As Black wades deep into a secret world of sadistic murder, he finds himself up against an adversary far deadlier than he had ever imagined. And Black can't help but wonder if the last, wicked laugh will be on him . . .
