(From the publisher):
"Swann's Last Song," was just the beginning. Now Henry Swann, tracer of lost persons, returns-in the acclaimed new mystery series that's a real find.
Swann's last case almost killed him, emotionally and physically. Now he's sworn off his old profession and taken on a steady gig. But climbing stairs to hook poor people up to cable is hard on his knees...and not the kind of connections he's good at making. So when an opportunity arises to bring order to chaos for a price-his secret pleasure in life-Swann is pulled back in.
The case starts simply, with a call to find a burglary suspect who's gone on the lam. But the twists and turns will take him right to the dizzying top of America's ivory towers.
Swann's soon on the trail of a wealthy lawyer's rebellious daughter, who disappeared along with her disreputable boyfriend. Finding the beau-an intellectual and amoral trickster-leads him into the dangerous midst of cutthroat academics, sexy librarians, and killer book collectors, with a priceless first edition of "Tender is the Night" the surprising prize along the way.
As interested in solving the mysteries of life as he is in catching criminals, Henry Swann is a gumshoe by trade and a philosopher by heart. As exciting and insightful as its hero, "Swann Dives In" is a mystery that goes deep and rarely lets the reader catch a breath.
