B. A. Braxtonabout this book: The Tattered Thread is the second novel in a series of stories centering around Detroit homicide detective Rein Connery. Just as in the first novel, Pigeon Blood, Connery takes a backseat to the other people in the story—the suspects, if you will—and so a whole host of new and exciting characters are introduced to the reader.
The man who is murdered is Carl Kastenmeier, a heartless and at times brutal oil paint varnish magnate. Carl mistreats his employees, his family, his estranged wife, and his lover. And he's perfectly fine with that, until one of them decides to kill him.
Detective Rein Connery unearths all manner of secrets that the grand Kastenmeier estate and its inhabitants have so expertly hidden over the past ten years: family squabbles, power struggles, abuse, and neglect are just some of the things that are dusted off for the world to see. The rich don't always have it easy, and their lives aren't always a bed of roses. Especially if they are controlled by a maniacal patriarch with a penchant for using thread as a means to humiliate and demoralize them.
