Slate, (the name he likes to go by) is a lawyer dealing with psychological problems after the death of his family in an accident. He takes to living on a boat and runs a bar on the beach. In his spare time he finds missing people for clients. A man called Kramer approaches him to find his missing daughter. He doesn’t think the police are doing enough to find her. Slate arrives in the city, but is only there two days when a captain from the Homicide Division gets in touch. Kramer’s body has been found on the railtrack, with Slate’s business card in his pocket. Is there a link between the missing girl and the death of her father? What part do Kramer’s wife and son play? Sally, the missing girl’s sports coach becomes involved. It is a good story, well written and I look forward to reading more Slate stories in the future.
