John Wessel is back with the third highly anticipated installment in his Harding mystery series. Wessel returns at the top of his game with the eagerly awaited third book featuring hard-boiled, ex-con, and ex-private investigator, Harding. KISS IT GOODBYE finds Harding at work on throwaway cases that other detectives won't touch. But when Tracy Lawrence (a former lover of Harding's girlfriend Alison) turns up dead in a small Illinois town, Harding is drawn into the strange circle of Grand Terrace. An eclectic University of Chicago dorm favoured by artists, writers and other social misfits, Grand Terrace was once the residence of Alison, Tracy and a cast of eccentric characters, and it soon becomes clear that someone hasn't forgotten what happened behind closed doors. Digging up a past that Alison considered dead and buried, Harding finds himself on a case that is as personal, and as dangerous as they come.
