A Los Angeles Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin return.

“First, imagine Katherine Hepburn at fourteen. Next, in your mind’s eye, replay Humphrey Bogart, at his middle-aged best, as Sam Spade. Now picture this oddest of couples as the newest duo in detective fiction and you’ll have a perfect portrait of the memorable leads in Sleeping Dog.”

—Los Angeles Times Book Review

Sleeping Dog (1-890208-51-5 $14.95) was nominated for every major mystery award. Now Leo Bloodworth (a middle aged grouchy P.I.) and Serendipity Dahlquist (the roller-skating, precocious, wise-acre teen) hit the streets again. This time they’re looking for a runaway teenager and a pair of sapphire earrings—which cases may, or may not be connected.

“...hilarious and yet sympathetic...works beautifully and memorably.”

—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

About the Author:

Dick Lochte, whose new books include the short story collection Lucky Dog and other Tales of Murder and the legal thriller L.A. Justice, co-authored with attorney Christopher Darden, is the current president of The American Crime Writers League. In addition to plotting crime fiction, Lochte has written screenplays for such actors as Jodie Foster, Martin Sheen and Roger Moore and is a long-time columnist for the Los Angeles Times where his mystery reviews appear every other Sunday. He resides in Southern California with his wife and son.

Review:

"A first novel that is original; that moves alertly along; that has considerable charm as well as action; that has believable characters and elegant writing; that has moments of high humor and some black humor; that has a plot well conversant with the amenities of the mystery story (private-eye division)." —New York Times Book Review  "Outclasses, in many ways, the tales of Raymond Chandler, Ross Macdonald and other renowned California mystery writers....A corker entertainment, uncontrived and satisfying...Lochte deserves raves for his debut." --Publishers Weekly
