Synopsis: Amos Walker, a tough-talking Detroit detective, will delight mystery buffs. Loren D. Estleman has written a series of fast-paced mysteries which occur in the Motor City where murders are committed nightly within full view of the glittering Renaissance Center.

In "Motor City Blue", Walker is hired by an ex-gangster named Ben Morningstar to find his missing ward Marla. His only clue is a black and white glossy of the type sold under the counter in "those" kinds of bookstores. While slugging his way to the solution to this case, Amos witnesses a kidnapping of an old Vietnam friend and solves the murder of a young black labor leader.

Estleman writes with a definite sense of style and contagious feeling for the rhythms of life in the inner city.

About the Author: Winner of three Shamus Awards for his Amos Walker novels, four Golden Spur Awards for Western fiction, three Western Heritage Awards, and many other awards for his other fiction, Loren D. Estleman has also been nominated for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Poison Blonde (2003) was his fifty-first novel. He and his wife, author Deborah Morgan, live outside Detroit, Michigan.
