Jamie Gabriel gets on his bike before dawn to deliver newspapers in his suburban Indianapolis neighborhood. Somewhere en route, he vanishes without a trace. Fourteen months later, Paul and Carol Gabriel are on the verge of abandoning hope that police will ever find a trace of their son, when they discover private investigator Frank Behr. Behr is an enigmatic mountain of a man who doesn't make it a practice to take hopeless cases, but Paul's plea for help awakens a personal pain that Behr can't ignore. He begins an unrelenting quest for answers that is in turn dangerous, haunting, and thrilling, and will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Richly textured, superbly poised, and charged with unrelenting suspense, CITY OF THE SUN introduces a private detective as complex, idiosyncratic, and sympathetic as Crais's Elvis Cole and Connelly's Harry Bosch. David Levien is a gifted storyteller.
