It's a slow day at the office for Kit Comfort at the Comfort and Company detective agency until Dina Harris walks into her life and offers her an assignment. She wants the company to track down her fiance who has been missing ever since he got on a train in Chicago. What Kit does not know is the simple matter of finding a missing partner is about to put her in the crosshairs of competing interests that span international boundaries. An escaped Nazi prisoner of war, A World War Two veteran with a bad case of memory loss, and a traveling radiologist are all on the cards as Kit and Henry race against time to find their man in A.D. Price's After The Blue, Blue Rain.

After The Blue, Blue Rain is a mystery novel by A.D. Price. Set in post-World War Two America, the storyline carries undertones of the prohibition era and the paranoia that engulfed the country at the end of the war. What impressed me was the way two seemingly unrelated plots with varied themes such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and crime are blended into a single fluid story. The character development is simple yet thorough, adequately covering how Kit got into her unusual position as the head of an investigative firm. What I would consider the icing on the cake is the way Price interprets events from Klaus' viewpoint. This is an exciting tale with a fast-paced plot that followers of the mystery genre will find too appealing to put down. An excellent detective story.
