The Man Who Never Returned

(2010)
(The second book in the Fintan Dunne series)
A novel by

 
 
Judge Joe Crater's disappearance in 1930 spawned countless conspiracy theories and captured the imagination of a nation caught in the grip of The Depression. Fifteen years later, Fintan Dunne, the detective encountered in Quinn's novel Hour of the Cat, recently retired and bored, answers a summons to New York where he is asked to solve the old case for a newspaper magnate interested in making a profit. Dunne confronts haphazard investigating, aggrieved participants and a grieving spouse as he travels from New York to Los Angeles and Havana, untangling decades-old clues in an attempt to solve the mystery still baffling America. Peter Quinn once again has written a compelling blend of history and fiction that is simply unputdownable.
