Modern day adventurer and playboy Gabriel Hunt is asked by the daughter of Dr. Lawrence Silver to find her missing father. Penned by the great and mighty Christa Faust. If Victor Gischler and Christa Faust were to collaborate on a child that child would rule the world of literature.

When Rosie never shows Frank figures he got dumped and heads out alone. 22 years later Rosie's old suitcase is found hidden behind a a fireplace in an old house and Frank is headed back home "whether he likes it or not."

The Whisperers by John Connolly. I cannot keep John Connolly and John Connelly straight. This is the Irish one.

Corduroy Mansions by Alexander McCall Smith. If you have trouble keeping Smith's series apart this is the African one.

The Glass Rainbow by James Lee Burke. I'm about six novels behind in Burke's Dave Robicheaux series. I never got started on that Montana series.
