|Summary, etc.:||His cover: courthouse janitor. His cause: justice. But when Paul McGrath uncovers a shocking connection to a file of missing evidence, he finds the truth sometimes hits a little too close to home. An intelligence agent-turned-courthouse janitor, Paul McGrath notices everything and everyoneâbut no one notices him. Itâs the perfect cover for the justice he seeks for both his father and the people whoâve been wronged by a corrupt system. Now heâs discovered a missing file on Alex Pardewâthe man who defrauded and likely murdered McGrathâs father but avoided conviction, thanks in large part to the loss of this very file. And what lies behind its disappearance is even worse than McGrath had feared. Meanwhile, at the courthouse, he stumbles on the case of Len Hendrie, a small businessman whoâs been accused of torching a venture capitalistâs mansion. Though Hendrie admits starting the fire, McGrath learns how the VC has preyed on average Joes to benefit himselfâand his extensive wine collection. McGrath canât resist looking deeper into this financial predator and soon finds himself in a gray area between his avenging moral compass and the limits of the law. Then, just as the Hendrie case is heating up, McGrath receives word of the death of his fatherâs former housekeeper, sending him back to his family home to confront unfinished business from his past. And heâs about to find some unwelcome truths about the mother he lost as a childâand the father who hid even more secrets than he realized.|
