9781598510058: The Lake Effect: A Milan Jacovich Mystery (Milan Jacovich Mysteries)

#5 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . .

Every Clevelander understands the lake effect, a weather condition that brings plenty of snow, especially in November when election time rolls around.

Milan Jacovich (it’s pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovich), the genial Cleveland private eye, has never been a political animal. But he owes a favor to mobster Victor Gaimari, and Milan always pays his debts. So he agrees to play watchdog over a mayoral election in suburban Lake Erie Shores in which dowdy housewife Barbara Corns is challenging incumbent Gayton True.

Everything seems calm on the surface―until True’s wife, Princess, is run down in the street just outside downtown Cleveland’s Tower City. It becomes obvious that there is more at stake than the mayor’s chair in a quiet suburban city hall. And when he discovers that the True campaign has employed his old nemesis, disgraced ex-cop Al Drago, who carries a grudge a mile wide, Milan knows he’s in for a lot rougher time of it than simply poll-watching.

From the Back Cover:

When moisture gathers over a large lake, the result is snow -- fast, heavy, fishtail flakes that seem to white-out every sin and crime. Milan Jacovich knows better. So when the local mob calls in a favor he owes, he's off to the Cleveland suburb of Lake Erie Shores to bodyguard Barbara Corns, a reluctant mayoral candidate. When the wife of her opponent is suspiciously killed, Jacovich's instincts lead him into a stew of organized crime secrets, a child porno ring, a vengeful cop, and a jealous lover. With time out for a tender new romance of his own, Milan's neck-deep in small-town politics and big-time trouble...
