In July 1900,
hapless insurance investigator Harry Reese travels to Buffalo to look into a suspicious
fire. But when Harry uncovers a smuggling ring, the case morphs into something
more sinister, and he's faced with a new set of questions. What's become of the
notorious ringleader? And was the missing Charles Elwell killed for the
insurance money? Or is he alive and sharing in the proceeds? To find the
answers, Harry travels to Canada and back in the company of a political boss's conniving
stooge and a curious young woman who seems to be conducting an investigation of
her own. It's a byzantine odyssey, during which Harry can never be sure of
anyone's loyalties, least of all those who've hired him.
