From the Publisher's website:

Some bullets take years to find their mark.... Former Toronto Detective Charlie McKelvey is puttering through the first year of his forced retirement. His tedious life is torn wide open when a friend enlists his help in locating a recent Bosnian immigrant who has simply disappeared without a trace. Her teacher and recent lover, Tim Fielding, suspects foul play. At first hesitant, McKelvey is quickly drawn into the case as the bodies and clues pile up. When the body of an unidentified woman turns up in Fielding’s apartment — and Fielding is nowhere to be found — McKelvey finds himself a prime suspect in an increasingly obscure murder investigation.
