WHAT WE RISK

Mick "Brew" Axbrewder is a P.I. who's seen better days. Once a full partner with investigator Ginny Fistoulari, now he works mostly as her hired muscle. They don't talk much since the time his screw-ups led to her losing a hand.

But their latest client's story doesn't add up. He claims to be on the run from mobsters to whom he owes large gambling debts. But he seems almost determined to get into harm's way, and to drag Brew and Ginny into the line of fire beside him.

Just to survive this case, much less solve it, Brew and Ginny are going to have to start working together better. And Brew's going to have to face up to his greatest fears.

"The settings ring true, and the characters have depth."
--- Booklist on The Man Who Risked His Partner

"Fun...He ought to follow this up."
-- San Jose Mercury-News on The Man Who Fought Alone

Mick "Brew" Axbrewder is a P.I. who's seen better days. A while back, deeply into alcoholism, he accidentally shot and killed a cop. Worse, the cop turned out to be his own brother. Even worse, in a case not long after that, in order to protect Brew from the consequences of his mistakes, his partner, Ginny Fistoulari, blew off her own left hand.

Now Mick works mostly as hired muscle for Ginny. They don't talk much; they've lost too much already. But their latest client's story doesn't add up. He claims to be on the run from mobsters to whom he owes large gambling debts. But he seems almost capriciously determined to get into harm's way and to drag Brew and Ginny into the line of fire beside him.

Just to survive this case, much less solve it, Brew and Ginny are going to have to start working together better. And Brew's going to have to face up to his greatest fears.

Over two decades ago, bestselling author Stephen R. Donaldson published three novels about Mick Axbrewder and Ginny Fistoulari as paperback originals under the pseudonym "Reed Stephens." More recently, under his own name, Donaldson published a new novel in the sequence, The Man Who Fought Alone; subsequently, the first novel in the sequence, The Man Who Killed His Brother, appeared under Donaldson's own name for the first time. Now, for Donaldson's millions of readers worldwide, the second of the original books, The Man Who Risked His Partner, also appears (in slightly revised form) under Donaldson's own name.

From the Back Cover:

"As he's done so vividly with Thomas Covenant, Donaldson uses Axbrewder as a vehicle to demonstrate that people, even at their lowest and most wretched, can find transcendence through community, concentration, and disciplined self-cultivation." -Boulder Camera (Colorado)
