Synopsis: A classic American private eyeB> To hear him tell it, Amos Walker is an unsuccessful man in an obsolete profession. Still, even P.I.s have a sense of honor, and Walker has always been a man who believes in paying back favors that people have done for him over the years. He owes his old friend Barry Stackpole a big one, for saving his life in a Cambodian shell crater a lifetime ago. Now Stackpole, lately a good, hard-scrounging reporter, has vanished. And finding him is the job Walker's been hired for-not once, but twice: first by Stackpole's newspaper, then by an attractive literary editor hot to track down an even hotter book the missing man's been writing. The investigatory trail becomes littered with a bewildering assortment of fresh dead bodies. Walker nearly joins the clutter when somebody rigs his steering and brakes. And a final revelation explosively narrows the distance between the tropical jungles of Asia and the concrete jungles of Detroit-and between one brand of war and another....
Product Description: Amos Walker, Estleman's seasoned private eye, gets emotionally involved in a case for the first time. His good friend and Vietnam buddy Barry Stackpole is a news columnist who is subpoenaed by a grand jury and fails to appear. His employer is being fined $1000 each day that he does not show. Also, a sultry book editor is looking for Stackpole and a manuscript that he has supposedly written. Walker follows the trail of his missing friend into the world of organized crime, the car-theft racket, precinct police headquarters, crime hunters and his own shrouded past, with only a smoky sense of who is friend and who is enemy.
