August Snow at Brilliant Books"Harlan Holmes thought his midlife crisis couldn't get any worse.  Laid off the police force thanks to budget cuts, he's been making a living as a private eye, following cheating spouses and, most recently, babysitting Leo Surocco, a law school student with a gambling addiction and a father determined to make something of his son, come hell or high water.  It's an easy enough gig.

Until Leo goes missing.

Somewhere along the Leelanau coast—about 45°N—Leo vanishes, leaving Harlan clueless and scrambling to find leads as Leo's father steps in to micromanage the investigation.  The more they dig, the more Harlan realizes how much he originally missed, including the sports scam Leo was running just before he disappeared.

With Leo's life on the line and what's left of his reputation at stake, Harlan quickly realizes his midlife crisis has only just begun."
