Blessed with a paying client, Stanley Hastings soon finds himself cursed with the onus of suspicion when the woman he is following is murdered, and the sleuth's efforts to clear his name take him to the highest levels of New York government

From Library Journal:

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.

From Publishers Weekly:

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."
