Private investigators John Travers and Wally Karpinski are best friends and business partners. For years, they have eked out an existence in Washington, DC, running down cheating spouses, installing security systems, and dragging deadbeat fathers into court. Known as crude, unconventional, and quirky, Travers and Karpinski exasperate local law enforcement officials with their competence. But everything is about to change when a shy, nervous young man shows up in their office.

When client Terrence McCoy discovers that there are two different birth certificates with his name on them, he asks the detectives to help him uncover his true identity. Because business is slow, the investigators reluctantly agree. They soon soon realize that a resolution will be neither easy nor quick when the case takes a startling turn. They consult their friend, Detective Oscar Demotta, for assistance, and he refers them to several unsolved cases involving dead young women and missing babies. As a favor to Demotta, Travers and Karpinski delve into the missing children cases and suddenly find themselves embroiled in a grim set of dangerous circumstances.

In this complex mystery tale, two private investigators must rely on the help of an eclectic group of characters as they investigate a bewildering scheme powered by money and twisted morality. ccarlroberts.com
