About the Author:

Michael Z. Lewin is the award-winning author of many mystery novels and short stories. Most have been set in and around Indianapolis, Indiana, where he grew up. Albert Samson is a low-key private eye and the stories focus on humane understanding of the cases and problems Samson encounters. Leroy Powder is an irascible Indy police lieutenant who truly wants his colleagues to become better cops. They're bound to be grateful, right? Both central characters have an abiding wish to see justice done. One of the features of the series novels, and some stand-alones, is that that main characters from one book often appear in lesser roles in other books. Since 1971 Mike has lived in the West of England, currently in Bath where his city-centre flat overlooks the nearby hills. Both his children have made careers in the arts. Masses more information and silly stuff is available on www.MichaelZLewin.com.

Review:

In the classic tradition of the American private eye. Scratch away the tin and you get molasses. The book is nicely constructed New York Times Book Review Lewin has brains and style Los Angeles Times Packed with suspense, literate and funny. A swell book to sink back into the pillows with Boston Globe Albert delivers his sardonic first-person guide-to-the-lower-depths with humor...the horrors unfold with just the right soupcon of comedy-of-errors Kirkus Reviews
