When the steadfast Ruby Jane Whittaker drops out of sight, dogged ex-cop Skin Kadash sets out to discover what drove the woman he loves to leave her life behind so suddenly and without explanation. The discovery of a dead man in Ruby Jane’s apartment and an attack by a mysterious stalker send Skin from Portland to California — and into a charged encounter with her one-time love Peter McKrall.

As questions mount and answers grow increasingly out of reach, Skin and Peter cross the country on a desperate journey deep into Ruby Jane’s haunted past — and toward an explosive confrontation which will decide their future.

Contemporary sharp-edged noir doesn’t get much better than Cameron’s mournful novel featuring ex-cop Skin Kadash. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Nothing’s soft about Cameron’s dark tale, but a surprising tone of compassion tucks itself into the narrative. It’s a perfect fit for Archer Mayor and William Kent Krueger fans. LIBRARY JOURNAL

Cameron has written a thriller that makes you want to turn the page faster and faster. He has also written a sensitive story about a young girl from a dysfunctional family who has more troubles than someone her age should have. Cameron’s writing easily and poetically handles the transition from Skin’s story to Ruby’s, from then to now. This is a story that will linger. BARBARA TOM
