As if Stanley Hastings didn't already have bad luck, in his first case the guy he was looking for was found dead and Stanley was accused. But he got out of that one. What were the odds of it happening again? In Stanley's case, apparently very high. Now Stanley must fight to clear his name when the NYPD accuses him of another murder. This gunless, gutless P.I. must solve a case that even New York's finest can't. Is it time for Stanley to find a new line of work?

Hall's likable, humorous, and self-deprecating protagonist/narrator, Stanley Hastings, is still signing up clients for a law firm in New York. Lately, however, unknown hands have strangled several prospects before Stanley can get a signature. Things look bad for Stanley and/or the law firm until Stanley, bucking the favorite theory of a prickly police sergeant, baits a trap for his own prime suspect. The narrator's easygoing observations, realistic quirks, and agreeable sense of humor sharpen the focus; a great addition to the series.--

In Hall's fourth Stanley Hastings novel the hero stumbles yet again into the arms of crime--this time, into a series of strangulations of potential clients for detective Hastings's ambulance-chasing employers. "Though the plot is somewhat garbled, Hall arranges wonderful surprises at the end," wrote PW , adding that the work is "sure to win Hall plaudits and fans."
