Not much could drag Jim Coleman out of a peaceful, if lonely, retirement and back to late nights, crime scenes, and chases. Jim Coleman is done with detective work and would just like to enjoy a cup of coffee on a sunny day. But when an old friend shows up with a case about an old flame, Coleman can’t say no. What starts as a missing persons case soon delivers more than he bargained for, and when Coleman’s own past offers clues, it’s clear that no one else can solve this mystery. But there’s a catch: Coleman was given six months to live eight months ago. J.R. Rain shows us that when it seems there’s nothing left to live for, there’s also nothing left to lose. His characters will take a chance on danger, doubt, even an unlikely romance—as long as they get a cup of coffee first. Rain is the author of 33 mystery, speculative, and romance novels, with online sales topping one million. A former private investigator, he skips cliché in favor of bringing authentic details and complex characters to the hard-boiled genre.

The story is written in the first-person perspective of this character who, despite the fact that he's near death, fin...
