FROM THE PUBLISHER - Charles Willeford won remarkable acclaim for MIAMI BLUES, his thriller about Sergeant Hoke Moseley's war with a ‘blithe psychopath’ who turned Miami upside down. Now Hoke is back, impeded in his pursuit of a new Miami killer by orders to take on the ‘cold case’ files - seemingly insoluble crimes that are keeping his boss from a promotion. Then, on Hoke's doorstep: a surprise from his ex-wife to complicate his affairs. From Hoke's Cuban partner, Ellita Sanchez: tearful news that puts his diplomatic skills to the test. From the sensuous young stepmother of the boy whose death Hoke is investigating: a surprising offer that Hoke accepts at his peril, then turns to unexpected advantage. Syncopated by Charles Willeford's unpredictable dark humor, pulsing with street talk and street violence, New Hope for the Dead is a stunner by a unique talent whom The New Yorker calls ‘extraordinarily winning.’ Small Bump On Front Endpaper, Otherwise Very Good In Slightly Worn & Faded Dustjacket With Some Small Tears.

Synopsis: 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...
