That likable accident-scene photographer and private investigator Stanley Hastings returns, inept as ever, as he tails a client's estranged wife. He follows the woman to a remote motel, falls asleep on surveillance, and wakes to find himself framed for her murder. As if that isn't enough, the murdered woman turns out to be someone else; Stanley's client duped him. With characteristic short, swift-moving sentences and low-key, wry humor ( Strangler , LJ 5/1/89; Favor , LJ 9/1/88), Hall moves his bumbling protagonist toward the truth. Continued high quality.

This fifth adventure of New York private eye Stanley Hastings finds the would-be action-writer set up as prime suspect for the murder of a woman he was hired to trail. According to PW , "The ending is a bit pallid and Stanley talks too much, but he's an appealing character nonetheless."
