THE MISSING AND THE DEAD

The Edgar Award nominated second thriller in the Bragg series of novels puts Jack Lynch in the same league as Robert B. Parker, Raymond Chandler, Sue Grafton, Dashiell Hammett, and Ross MacDonald.

"Bragg is authentic, gripping, gritty." San Francisco Examiner

Private eye Peter Bragg's relentless search for a missing insurance investigator unearths shocking secrets involving embezzled money, the disappearance of a cop, art stolen from a San Francisco gallery, and a serial killer obsessed with the expressions on his victim's faces when they realize they are going to die. Bragg connects the dots, creating a chilling portrait of impending death... and it could be his own.

"This is a first-rate series. The novels are well plotted. Bragg is a restrained and believable hero. The action scenes are excellent." 101 Knights: A Survey of American Detective Fiction

"The books are damn good, featuring a hard but believable hero." The Thrilling Detective
