P.I. Michael Kelly is sitting in his office when he gets an anonymous email offering him nearly a quarter of a million dollars to find Ray Perry, the disgraced Illinois governor - no questions asked. Two years ago Perry's case went global when he disappeared from a federal courthouse in Chicago moments after being sentenced to thirty-eight years in prison.
Everyone, including the feds, believes that Perry's wife, Marie, knows where her husband is. But as Kelly digs deeper into her past he finds a woman far more intriguing than her husband. Her secrets are many and varied; some of them she shared with her husband, some she kept to herself. And some could get Michael Kelly killed.
A hard-eyed look at ambition and trust, The Governor's Wife is stylish suspense from a modern master.
In the latest installment in Michael Harvey's beloved Michael Kelly series, Chicago's favourite Ovid-reading, gun-toting private investigator takes on Illinois' first family in a blistering thriller that charts the border where ambition ends and evil begins
