Bestselling author Mike Nappa first introduced readers to private
investigators Trudi Coffey and Samuel Hill in Annabel Lee, where they had to race
against time—and a killer—to rescue a fourteen-year-old girl. In The Raven, the
duo found themselves mired in another life-threatening plot when a pickpocket gets
in over his head with the Ukrainian mafia. Now coauthors Mike Nappa and Melissa
Kosci have teamed up to deliver one last epic thrill in the final installment of the
Coffey & Hill Series, A Dream within a Dream.
All is well with Trudi Coffey—until two FBI agents appear, asking probing
questions about her ex-husband, Samuel Hill. Trudi is determined to find him and
get to the bottom of his disappearance. But her life is thrown into chaos when she
faces two confrontations in one night.
When Samuel finally surfaces, he reveals that he has made powerful enemies trying to protect someone
named Dream from the Boston mob. Dream might just be the key to solving one of the greatest unsolved
art heists in history. Trudi and Samuel will have to call on all their allies to keep their charge safe.
A fast-paced tale filled with action, intrigue, and Edgar Allan Poe references, A Dream within a Dream
will grab you from the first page and won’t let up until the very end.
