Overview

#3 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . .

No one is as loyal to old friends as Cleveland private investigator Milan Jacovich (it’s pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovich). So when a grade school chum worries his son Paulie might be selling drugs, Milan has no choice but to help.

Milan turn up Paulie’s connection, a handsome Jamaican named Deshon who pals around with two baseball-bat wielding thugs and a German shepherd dog who looks like he’s all business.

The narcotics business makes curious bedfellows, as Milan discovers during his investigation of a particularly brutal murder; he butts heads with a wily realtor named Christmas, a flamboyant automobile dealer with lofty political ambitions, an edgy street pusher, and his old friends from the Little Italy mob, Don Giancarlo D’Allessandro and Victor Gaimari.

Milan also encounters a drug gang unparalleled in their savagery, and unearths a relic from every Clevelander’s childhood that proves to be deadly.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Moves with all the skill and economy of prose that is fast becoming Roberts’ trademark.
Des Moines Register
Roberts combines a strong character and a clever plot with the ethnic diversity that Cleveland provides. He proves that Midwest private eyes can hold their own with the best ones from either coast.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Again employing his Cleveland, Ohio, setting (as in Full Cleveland ) Roberts presents private eye Milan Jacovich in his third appearance. Here Jacovich becomes embroiled in the drug trade while trying to help childhood friend Matt Baznik, whose son Paul has undergone a worrisome personality change. After talking with the sulky, uncooperative teenager--who seems to have a considerable amount of cash--Jacovich suspects him of dealing drugs. Some schoolyard snooping and conversations with his own son, formerly a buddy of Paul's, lead the PI to a group of black kids and a Jamaican drug dealer. Warned off the politically sensitive turf by a narcotics cop, Jacovich turns to Giancarlo D'Allessandro, the drug-hating head of the local mob, for information. After the dealer is murdered and D'Allessandro's leads point to a wealthy citizen with political aspirations, Jacovich is badly beaten. Only by joining forces with the ex-athlete principal of the boys' school is Jacovich able to unravel a devious plot. Roberts displays a sure sense of place in this involving mystery, and his decent, likable detective is firmly aware of the consequences of his actions. (June)
