A missing husband. A suspicious obituary. She’s not the only one hunting down a dead man’s footsteps.
As a divorcee, Angelina Bonaparte knows firsthand the lengths some men will go to escape responsibility. When a worried mother wants the private investigator to track down her missing husband, she’s eager to bring the deadbeat dad to justice. But even after she discovers the man’s obituary, she refuses to believe it until she sees the body. Tracking down the nurse who last saw him alive could be the missing puzzle piece to her client’s broken family.
But as she digs deeper, she realizes there’s something darker at play than dodging child-support payments. And she may not be the only one hunting the man down. To close the case and reunite her client’s family, she must track down the missing husband without falling prey to the same ruthless hunter.

I parked on the street and sat for a few moments in the dark of a cold Milwaukee January night. How do you tell a woman whose husband abandoned her and their children fifty-eight months earlier that you found his obituary online? Would Marcy Wagner be relieved? I didn’t think so.
A private investigator has its pros and cons. You work long hours and sometimes can get so wrapped up in work that it becomes difficult to have a relationship because most of our cases are about infidelity or adultery. You end up doing things that you have never thought you’d ever end up doing, i.e. digging in someone else’s garbage, bird watching, pulling an all-nighter surveillance stakeout, and impersonating others to get the information that you seek for a client. This information can make or break somenone’s life…and most of the time, it’s the latter. Would you still want a job like that if it meant that you could possibly dangle your life in someone else’s hands? You would knowingly be putting yourself in danger against who knows…the mafia or mob, gang related groups, jealous spouses, and the list goes on and on.
Angelina Bonaparte has a new partner named Bobbie, and he has been catching on pretty quick. His assistance in the past has saved them both on occasion. When Angelina and Bobbie have a new lead on a case that they’ve been working for several months, they don’t realize right away that they may be getting into some pretty heavy danger. Someone’s husband has abandoned his wife and children and now he winds up in an obituary for another town? Something doesn’t add up for starters. On second thought, this man has been untraceable for fifty-eight months! Why would his death surface so easily, unless he wanted everyone to believe he was dead, right?! Angelina and Bobbie go digging in search of answers, first on their list is the lawyer and retirement home where the husband made last contact. She soon realizes that this may be something that she needs to talk to her father about after a hit has been ordered. She has always known her father’s affiliations, but never thought that the day would come when she relied on his connections for answers to one of her cases. Is she in enough danger to warrant needing her father’s protection?
Rathbun has an entertaining mystery with this third installment. Character development is fantastic and the story-line flows well. This crime mystery takes readers on a dangerous path to find someone who has taken all precautions to stay hidden. Readers will find interest in the satire engulfed in the book as well as the mystery leading up to find out the lengths a man will go to save himself from his past. Since this review is complimenting the audiobook, it appears that the story is well-written with the voice relay being clear and flowing effortlessly. The narrator seems to have a little trouble with some voice differentiation, but others were captivating. If you are a reader of crime mysteries, this may be something to pick up the next time you are looking for a book to read. This is the third installment in the Angelina Bonaparte Mysteries. While this book can be read as a standalone, some of the character backgrounds and history carries over directly from the previous installments.
