Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Private detective Bill Smith is hurtled headlong into the most provocative — and personal — case of his career when he receives a chilling late night telephone call from the NYPD, who are holding his fifteen-year-old nephew Gary. But before he can find out what's going on, Gary escapes Bill's custody and disappears into the dark and unfamiliar streets...

Bill and his partner, Lydia Chin, try to find the missing teen and uncover what it is that has led him so far from home. Their search takes them to Gary's family in a small town in New Jersey, where they discover that one of Gary's classmates was murdered. Bill and Lydia delve into the crime — only to find it eerily similar to a decades-old murder-suicide...

Now, with his nephew's future — and perhaps his very life — at stake, Bill must unravel a long-buried crime and confront the darkness of his own past...

Review:

"[O]ne of the very best private-eye duos in the genre...[a] highly readable and most entertaining series....As before, Rozan delivers strong characters, deft plotting, and a hard-driving narrative. We'll say it again: don't miss this one." Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"[Rozan's] masterly take on one of the genre's classic tropes — the sins of the fathers waiting to bear poisonous fruit for their children — is worthy of that trope's own spiritual father, Ross Macdonald." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Despite the hype...[Winter and Night] isn't quite up to [Rozan's] usual high standard....[A] disturbing, suspenseful, but often shrill and repetitive novel..." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Winter and Night did not attract as much attention as Gus Van Sant's Columbine film Elephant, but where the Van Sant film has the cooled-out voyeurism of the hippest art installation, Rozan's has the vital instincts of good, solid muckraking....Rozan gets at the rot of suburbia in Winter and Night, but unlike nearly all the filmmakers and novelists who have addressed that subject from a superior height, Rozan isn't afraid to get her hands dirty." Charles Taylor, Salon.com

Review:

"To read S. J. Rozan is to experience the kind of pure pleasure only a master can deliver." Dennis Lehane, bestselling author of Mystic River

Synopsis:

Private detective Bill Smith receives a late-night phone call from the NYPD, who have just arrested his 15-year-old nephew, Gary. When Gary disappears, Bill and his partner, Lydia Chin, search for the teen — and find a chilling crime that puts Gary's future — and his life — in jeopardy.
