Charles Ardai, author of Little Girl Lost and Songs of Innocence and founder of the celebrated Hard Case Crime imprint, brings new meaning to “poetic justice” in his latest foray into crime writing. For crippled octogenarian Perseus Algernon, his binoculars let him escape from his own home–and thrust him into a deadly game of lust and greed. When a violent murder takes place next door, only Algernon’s word can confirm the innocence of a beautiful young woman. Reliable authorities corroborate the details, but Deputy Hennessy has his doubts about the story this Good Samaritan tells. Does being neighborly extend to covering up the truth about murder?
