A Shadow in the NighteBook - 2007
Denver lawyer Adam Larsen is always an easy target for damsels in distress. When he undertakes to help the sister of a missing woman accused of a high-tech embezzlement scheme, he quickly discovers she hasn't told him the entire story. Larsen encounters an arrogant CEO with a habit of stretching the truth, a hostile security chief who bitterly resents Larsen's interference, a quirky young programmer dreaming of establishing his own internet dynasty, an obsessive opera aficionado, and more. An anonymous phone call leads Larsen on a bone-chilling trek through the mountains near Georgetown, Colorado, where he finds the body of the missing suspect, Alice Bryant. Why would anyone want Larsen to find her body? And why did someone ransack the apartment of Bryant's beautiful assistant -- rumored to be having desperate financial problems -- using a key stolen from her key ring? After someone tries to electrocute the CEO, Larsen thinks he knows some of the answers; but the meddling of Larsen's nemesis, police sergeant Joe Stone, wreaks havoc on Larsen's well-laid plans. And then there's the matter of the missing money.
