Overview

Written in the tradition of Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, the Jim Knighthorse series introduces a new hard-hitting, wise-cracking hero with a modern twist.

Private investigator Jim Knighthorse returns in book 4 of the series when he's hired to find out if Freddie Calgary, a popular movie and TV star, really overdosed and died two years ago, or if he is still alive. The investigation turns into a big road trip as Jim follows the clues to L.A., Sedona, and San Antonio. There is plenty of action and danger as the dark side of Hollywood spills its blood, secrets and scandal over three cities.


**Acclaim for the novels of J.R. Rain**

"Gripping, adventurous, and romantic--J.R. Rain's The Lost Ark is a breakneck thriller that traces the thread of history from Biblical stories to current-day headlines. Be prepared to lose sleep!"
--JAMES ROLLINS, international bestselling author of The Eye of God and Altar of Eden

"I enjoyed this immensely. The protagonist, Samantha Moon, is a female vampire with a husband and children. Those predate her condition; six years ago she was attacked by a vampire and rendered into one. Now she's trying to carry on with family and private eye business, and she's a feisty, skilled person, so is doing mostly okay. It is not a horror story; she buys animal blood to eat and doesn't generally prey on humans. But her husband has an increasing problem with her coldness--not of spirit, but of body. 'You sicken me and scare the hell out of me,' he tells her. 'And when I touch you it's all I can do to not gag.' She replies, 'Words every wife wants to hear.' I love this! What makes it special are her character and nature."
--PIERS ANTHONY, New York Times bestselling author of A Spell for Chameleon and On A Pale Horse

"Dark Horse is one of the best books I've read in a long time! A great classic detective story with a modern twist. Unique and interesting characters (I think I'm half in love with Jim Knighthorse now!), a great plot that kept me guessing until the end, and some of the funniest lines I've read anywhere."
--GEMMA HALLIDAY, author of Deadly Cool and Play Dead

    This is the fourth and best Jim Knighthorse story so far. Jim is

    This is the fourth and best Jim Knighthorse story so far. Jim is a gritty, hard nosed, self impressed private investigator who works as hard as he lives and loves. He has been charged in tracking down an aged child star who may or may not be dead. In the journey from California to Sedona to San Antonio, he chases bad guys, tracks murderers, makes some new friends we hope to see in future books, some new enemies and experiences a miracle in the midst of it all. Even the mysterious Jack shows up to throw Jim a curve or two. If you haven't read the other Kighthorse books, this one stands alone with enough back story that you won't miss a beat. It will leave you wanting to read the other three. J. R. Rain is a masterful story teller who writes great dialogue. Never dull.

    Jim Knighthorse is back as his usual cocky, conceited, smarty pants self.  All the Knighthorse novels are fast, fun reads and Clean Slate is no exception.  It is well written with an interesting plot and lots of humor.  I love the good natured banter between Jim and Sanchez and grateful Cindy is there to keep Jim somewhat grounded.  If you are a Jim Knighthorse fan, you will not be disappointed.  If you've never read Knigthorse, no worries.  You don't have to read the previous three to enjoy this.

    I love J.R. Rain's books. He's fun to read and intelligent, emot

    I love J.R. Rain's books. He's fun to read and intelligent, emotional & funny. Knighthorse is one of my favorite characters of his.
    Maybe even my most favorite. I just love that guy...almost as much as he loves himself & Cindy!

    Knighthorse returns in a wonderfully interesting mystery that has it all: emotion, wit, intelligence, sarcasm, excitement, suspense,
    gasps & laughs. This book was so much fun for me. I especially love the interesting ethical issues as well as the laughs. I love
    that this book made me think as much as it made me feel & laugh. What a fun ride.

    I'm always sorry when I finish a Knighthorse book. It's tough to say good bye to my dear Jim. But I'm thrilled to discover that he will
    return to me in the future. Amen. A life without Knighthorse would be bleak, indeed.

    I recommend this book to people who enjoy a fun, exciting, intelligent mystery with ethical issues & lots of cocky sarcasm & humor!
