Synopsis: Homicide detective Hoke Moseley is called to a posh Miami neighborhood to investigate a lethal overdose. There he meets the alluring stepmother of the decedent and begins to wonder about dating a witness. Meanwhile, he has been threatened with suspension by his ambitious new chief unless he leaves his beloved, if squalid, suite at the Eldorado Hotel and moves downtown. With free housing hard to come by, Hoke is desperate to find a new place to live. His difficulties are only amplified by an assignment to reinvestigate fifty unsolved murders, the unexpected arrival of his two teenage daughters, and a partner struggling with an unwanted pregnancy. With few options, and even fewer dollars, he decides that the suspicious and beautiful stepmother of the dead junkie might be a compromised solution to all of his problems.Packed with atmosphere and humor, New Hope for the Dead is a classic murder mystery by one of the true masters of the genre. Charles Willeford's tour de force is an irresistible invitation to become acquainted with one of the greatest detective characters of all time.
From the Inside Flap:
Hoke Moseley's boss is out for a promotion. His partner is having a baby. His ex-wife is moving to California with a major leaguer who makes ten times Hoke's policeman's salary. And Hoke's two daughters have shown up at his squalid, flea-bitten Miami Beach motel: they're expecting a dad.
When it rains in Florida, it pours. Dead broke, Hoke needs to find a home inside the Miami city limits within twenty-four hours, while he and his pregnant partner, Ellita Sanchez, have been assigned fifty old unsolved murder cases by their chief. But while Major Willie Brownley wants results -- and all the credit -- for solving some cold cases, one very hot case won't let Hoke go. In fact, this little matter of a dead junkie and his beautiful stepmother might just be the answer to all of Hoke's prayers...
