About this title


Ex-linebacker-turned-Denver P.I. Streeter battles a whole new set of low-lifes, when he represents a local restaurateur who lands in hot water with some major underworld figures and ends up in the middle of pizza war. Tour.


Author Michael Stone actually works as a private detective in Denver, which gives his series about a similarly-situated shamus named Streeter a welcome edge. There's also a sly sense of the basic foolishness of criminal life, probably left over from Stone's previous career as a newspaper reporter. Also, you can't help feeling good about a mystery such as <i>Totally Dead</i>, which includes a hoodlum named Mitch Bosco who listens to Tony Robbins self-help tapes but occasionally burns down the wrong house, and a self-styled Godfather, Al Lucci, called &quot;the Cheese Man,&quot; who does more damage with his restaurant food than with his guns.<p> The muscular, very-married Streeter and his wise old bail bondsman partner Frank Dazzler have to come between these two pillars of Colorado crime when some out-of-state heavies try to move in on Lucci's operation. Lucci might not be much of a capo, but he is an old client who pays his bills on time--qualities that earn Streeter's loyalty. Spicing up the stew is the return of the sexy, ambitious Ronnie Taggart, who added zest to Stone's first Streeter book, <i>The Low End of Nowhere</i>. That and two other adventures--<i>Token of Remorse</i> and <i>A Long Reach</i>--are available in paperback. <i>--Dick Adler</i></p>
