Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 10 hours 53 minutes
A small girl brings Joe Gunther a bird's nest-made partially of human hair. In the search to match a body-and an identity-to the hair's owner, Joe comes across an unexplained death, a grisly murder, and a sudden disappearance. All seem to be entangled in a puzzling web of municipal corruption, blackmail, and industrial espionage. A shell-shocked World War II veteran nicknamed the Ragman may hold the key to it all-but only if Joe can get him to talk before the murderer strikes again.
"By practicing his craft with dazzling skill and by digging for the deeper moral issues behind every grassroots crime, [Archer Mayor] has made an honorable art form of the regional mystery."-New York Times Book Review
