Look not mournfully into the past. Wisely improve your present." Longfellow

Lewis Cole is getting back on his feet after the action in "Fatal Harbor." His friend, Det. Sgt. Diane Woods, of the Tyler, New Hampshire continues her recovery after almost being killed in that adventure.

Now, Lewis former lover and current assistant editor of "Tyler Chronicle," Paula Quinn asks his help in finding her fiance, Mark Spencer, a local attorney who has been missing for a number of days and nothing seems to be done about it.

Lewis has resigned from his job as a magazine columnist (his prior work was as a DOD analyst.) and undertakes to help Paula as a private citizen. This hampers Lewis actions as a number of people refuse to speak to him in his private role.

Felis Tinois, a recurring character in the Lewis Cole adventures, does agree to help Lewis. He provides his usual assistance in any areas that are needed, from weapons to food to transportation.

A key to Lewis investigation is learning Mark's social security number which indicates where he was born.

There are numerous obstacles placed in Lewis' path but with guts and determination, he continues his investigation.

The theme of friendship and love are well described and a good lesson to have. Louis does so much for his dear friends and his love of life and those near and dear to him.

I received a free book in return for my honest review.
