In his third book, Eric Lee features nine stories with vivid characters that work to solve, cover up or committ a crime. In the short story, Murder in a Snow Covered Town, a beautiful ten-year-old girl has disappeared. Her grief-stricken parents, frustrated with the progress of the police, enlist the help of private eye Robert Douglas to find her. Has she been taken or did she merely run away? Will the police or will the detective find her first? And will she be found dead or alive? In another story, four guests arrive separately to a gated mansion. As they gather in the living room, some of the guests remember each other. They piece together that they all played a central role in the conviction of Carlos Rivera ten years earlier. They soon meet their host for the evening: recent prison escapee, Carlos Rivera.
