Publisher's Summary

Porter Wren makes a living sifting through the debris of New York's most horrific murders and sensational crimes, searching for the twist that the beat reporters missed, the illuminating irony, the romantic detail that adds meaning to the relentless wreckage of human appetite and folly. Devoted to his wife and two children, why then does Porter telephone his wife and lie about his plans for the evening, minutes before he finds himself in the Fifth Avenue apartment of a beautiful woman with a story to tell, staring at her late husband's autopsy photos and reading the police files on his unsolved murder? Who is Porter Wren? The man who protects his family behind walls, electronic security devices, and unpublished phone numbers? Or the man who in order to indulge his need to understand the danger, deceptions and desires of the urban night will place them at risk? And equally urgent, who is the woman who beckons him and what is her story?

Excellent abridgment. I usually will not listen to anything but unabridged books but I made an exception on this one because I liked the book so much. Excellent book - dark, intellectual & sexy - with very interesting characters and a great plot.
