Always Say Goodbye
Title: Always Say Goodbye
Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky
Scratching out a living as a process server in Sarasota, Florida, four years after the hit-and-run death of his wife in Chicago, Lew Fonesca returns to his hometown, determined to uncover the truth about the “accident” that claimed his wife’s life.
Life’s a sneaky mistress, though, and has a way of suckering you into caring. Lew’s found that he’s really good at helping people get out of bad situations. That he matters. And Lew’s therapist, who alternately acts as his conscience and his sparring partner, tells him that unless he’s willing to leave the planet, it’s about time that he goes back to Chicago and closes the door to the past so that he can finally get on with the rest of his life. Lew hates to admit it, but he’s beginning to see her point.
So Lew returns to his home town, to friends and family…and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. He’s resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife. In doing so, he’ll uncover both sweet and painful memories of his past. He’ll also confront a murderer who’ll not hesitate to kill again to make sure hidden secrets stay buried.
