The most gruesome and unthinkable murders keep Private Detective Charlie Komensky on the move through territory far beyond his geographic comfort zone in this second novel and third case of the series.  The discovery of a body disfigured by fire and smoke inside an old steam engine interrupts Charlie’s vacation, and almost destroys his relationship with his capable but frustrated fiancée.  As Linda threatens to break off the relationship completely, Charlie may stray from it with the young and willing female investigator assigned to the case.  At the same time, shadowy criminal elements conspire to take advantage of Charlie’s distractions, and the grotesque murders mount up.  Always on the financial ropes, Charlie tries to escape being shot, electrocuted, and framed for attempted murder while uncovering clues that lead to an old diamond heist and his own blocked memory.
