Lee Adams, author
In the center of a three-block stretch of abandoned dirt, a diner is resurrected where it stood sixty years before. And it looks exactly like the original, but for the dead girl on the welcome mat. Julie Page, the new owner, is a writer of waning prestige and questionable talent, already haunted by personal demons in addition to the ghosts she may have just inherited. Compelled to figure out what happened the day before the door was open to the public and who killed the young woman found pressed against the glass, she solicits the aid of every street angel the seaside town of Berle has to offer; from a vindictive detective to the hookers and hoodlums frequenting the Promenade where only the diner stands. As the second installment in the Julie Page Mystery Series, Nighthawks offers the same broken concrete and burnt-out neon as its predecessor, 5th and Vanguard, but escorts the reader further underground. No apologies for bad behavior, Nighthawks is a love letter addressed to our darker inclinations.
