About this title

Synopsis:

This collection of ten highly original stories involving brash private investigator Amos Walker is a superb, entertaining read. With colourful characters, twisting plots and cracking dialogue ithas everything readers have come to expect from a leading crime writer.

From the Inside Flap:

Detroit’s favorite P.I., Amos Walker, barrels through this collection of five short stories by Shamus Award winner, Loren D. Estleman. General Murders upholds Estleman’s reputation as a master of the short story. Both card-carrying fans of Amos Walker and those who are new to the series will devour these stories as they, with Walker, expose crime in some of the most corrupt alleys and steamy streets of Detroit. Included in this audiobook are these vintage Walker and Estleman pieces: “Greektown,” “Robber’s Roost,” “Fast Burn,” “Dead Soldier,” and “Eight-Mile and Dequindre.” The stories rejoice the hard-edge, wise-cracking, and scandal that typify the genre of private eye fiction.The Oscar-nominated star of Jackie Brown, Robert Forster narrates all five stories in this collection. His history of playing detective-types in such films as Original Gangstas brings a gritty-edged sound to Estleman’s work.
