Indianapolis’s least employed PI, Albert Samson, heads to southern Indiana in search of a missing woman
Facing insolvency and imminent eviction, private detective Albert Samson finally catches a break. Elizabeth Staedtler hires him to find her missing friend, Priscilla. But is Priscilla really missing or has she simply run away from her husband?
Conducting an investigation in an unfamiliar city lands Samson a stint in lockup, two murderers on his tail, and a narrow escape from his own violent end that makes the dispossessed detective consider hanging up his gumshoes for good.
