In this new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ian K. Smith, an ex-cop turned private investigator seeks justice on the vibrant, dangerous streets of Chicago.
In THE UNSPOKEN (Thomas&Mercer), former Chicago detective Ashe Cayne is desperate for redemption. Unwilling to cross the blue shield of silence and participate in a police department cover-up involving the death of a young black man, Cayne is pushed out of the force. But he doesn’t plan on sitting on the sidelines. He believes there’s too much injustice out there and he’s the man to take it on as Private Investigator, Ashe Cayne.
When a young woman, Tinsley Gerrigan, goes missing, her wealthy parents from the North Shore hire Cayne to find her. As Cayne looks into her life and past, he uncovers secrets Tinsleys been hiding from her family and he fears he may never find Tinsley alive.
His worries spike when Tinsley’s boyfriend is found murdered on the tough Chicago streets. Cayne must navigate his complicated relationships within the Chicago PD, leveraging his contacts and police skills to find the missing young woman, see justice done, and earn his redemption.
THE UNSPOKEN had me madly flipping pages. I couldn’t find out what happened next fast enough. I like that Smith has created a sophisticated, complex and multi layered character in Ashe which should provide material for many more books. I can’t wait to read the next book in Chicago PI Ashe Cayne’s adventures.
