|Summary, etc.:||Five prominent attorneys in Minneapolis have had their computer systems hacked and very sensitive case files stolen. Those attorneys are then contacted by an association of local whistleblowers known as NIMN and are quietly alerted that they have received those documents from an anonymous source. If those files are released, then not only will those lawyers be ruined, but it might even destroy the integrity of the entire Minnesota legal system. This group of lawyers turns to Private Investigator Holland Taylor with a simple directive: stop the disclosure any way you can.But while the directive is simple, the case is not. To find the missing files and the person responsible, Holland must first dive into the five cases covered in the files--divorce, bribery, class action, rape, and murder. While Taylor is untangling the associates and connections between the cases and families affected, things take another mysterious turn and time is running out. As the situation becomes more threatening, Holland Taylor is trapped in the middle of what is legal and what is ethical--between right, wrong, and deadly.--|

In Darkness, Sing Me a Song? (2018), Housewright brought private investigator Holland Taylor back after nearly 20 years. In this follow-up, a group of lawyers turn to Taylor to find the people who hacked their confidential files, and then stop them from making the files public. Taylor knows it's not an easy assignment, but he has no idea just how difficult it will beâin order to find the mysterious hackers, he'll have to dig into each of the five cases whose files were hacked, and that proves to be an undertaking fraught with danger. Housewright is an accomplished crime-fiction writer: his series about PI Rushmore McKenzie is better known, but the first Taylor novel, 1995's Penance, won an Edgar Award for Best First Novel, and it's very nice to see Housewright reconnecting with the character who launched his career.
