BITTER REMEDY, by Conor Fitzgerald
The pretty girl has an older more-or-less fiance, the operator of a seedy nightclub employing trafficked sex workers, whom Blume instantly despises. With less than his usual reason, Blume decides to solve an ancient murder. The present disappearance of the Romanian girl - whose life story is told in detailed flashbacks - is horrifying and heart-rending. Blume, by now taking handfuls of potent prescription drugs, is a walking pharmacological time bomb. The climax is satisfyingly awful. This series needs to be read in order. It's a 4.
