“Hi. I figured calling your station phone number was more secure than using a cell. Listen our friend Dexter found something about who may have tried to frame Jean-Claude. Turns out that there is a lot more to this thing! It’s big. Jean-Claude and Jaime are meeting me here before we all head over to see Tortego at his offices. We should be there in a half hour and we figure this meeting will run most of the day. If you can join us fine but if not I’ll tell you about it later after your shift is over. Call me.”
A few moments later a report comes into the station about a possible terrorist bomb explosion at a Midtown office building. No survivors are reported. To his horror Vinnie realizes the bombsite’s address is the exact location of Tortego’s offices. In a panic Vinnie rushes to the scene where, out of nowhere, he is shot from behind by an unknown assailant. Its’ four funerals and a wedding, as the newest Julian book unfolds.
When Vinnie arrives at the site, there is total devastation, and obviously no survivors and he is distraught to think that Mark is dead.... then suddenly Vinnie hears a voice behind him, and is then shot.
You learn more about the characters in this series, and how they became involved with what was happening in the story. Some good and some bad.... and at the end, you learn the identity of the person who planted the bombs, and I have to admit I did not see that one coming!!
As you finish this book, you realise that the story will still continue, as there are some loose ends that need addressing, but I think there will be more people showing they have hidden agendas, and are not how Mark and Vinnie first thought they were.
While each individual mystery can be read as a stand along, there are storylines that continue from one book to another, so we recommend you use the series in order:

When not seeking out interesting new locales for his books he can be found dinning with friends and enjoying all the city he adores has to offer.
Though he has not yet met the supernatural denizens of NYC, he does hope too one day. And yes, there is a "letter Lounge" albeit under a different name.
