It's a violent encounter that private investigator Andy Hayes could have done without. One minute he's finishing up some grocery shopping ahead of a custody visit with his sons. The next, he must come to the rescue of a Somali-American mother and her young children as anti-immigrant bullies torment them.

Grateful for his intervention, the Somali community hires Andy to find a missing teenager who vanished without a trace and is now accused of plotting a terror attack in his adopted hometown of Columbus, Ohio. The government is certain that nineteen-year-old Abdi Mohamed followed in the footsteps of his brother, who died in Syria a few months earlier in a jihadi assault. But Mohamed's family isn't convinced, describing a soccer-loving American kid who renounced his brother's actions and planned to attend college in the fall and become a diplomat someday.

Soon Andy is fending off fed-up FBI agents and dueling with a mysterious foe with links to the white supremacist movement. As he draws ever closer to the truth behind Mohamed's disappearance, Hayes stumbles onto a conspiracy that could put hundreds of lives in danger, including his own two boys.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An anti-immigrant attack propels Welsh-Huggins's timely fifth mystery featuring Columbus, Ohio, PI Andy Hayes....Welsh-Huggins educates and entertains as he explores immigrant issues through his empathetic hero's investigation."
"Ohio P.I. Andy `Woody' Hayes has ex-wives to support, a penchant for rubbing people the wrong way, and with a sideways code of honor that makes him a knight in tin-foil armor. In other words, Andy Hayes is a lot of fun. Andrew Welsh-Huggins spins a tale of intrigue and a human warmth surprising for the genre. He's a writer on the rise." -- W.L. Ripley, author of Storme Warning
"[Welsh-Huggins] excels at storytelling. With a reporter's eye and a novelist's flair, he raises the bar with each entry in his series. And his deepening development of Andy adds gravitas.The Third Brother gives frightening and poignant voice to the scourges of bigotry, whether from jihadists, white supremacists, zealots of any stripe - and even people who silently assume the worst of those who differ in appearance or background." -- Jay Strafford
Praise for the Andy Hayes Mysteries:

"This series gets better with each book."
Praise for the Andy Hayes Mysteries:

"Andy is a likable, cynical, at times humorous, and always witty protagonist with a penchant for trouble."
Praise for the Andy Hayes Mysteries:

"Call [The Hunt] Rust Belt noir. Call it a hybrid of whodunit and thriller. But above all, call it splendid - and this talented author's best yet."
Praise for the Andy Hayes Mysteries:

"Welsh-Huggins has a way with language...[He] is an Associated Press reporter, and the urge to bring the news is an unkillable one."
Praise for the Andy Hayes Mysteries:

"Andrew Welsh-Huggins proves himself a master of heartland noir." -- William Kent Krueger, author of the Cork O' Connor mysteries
