Overview

Amos Walker doesn't mean to walk into trouble. But sometimes it finds him, regardless. The missing woman has left a handwritten note that said, "Don't look for me." Any P.I. would take that as a challenge, especially when he found out that she'd left the same message once before, when having an illicit affair.

But this time it's different. The trail leads Walker to an herbal remedies store, where the beautiful young clerk knows nothing about the dead body in the basement…or about any illegal activity that might be connected to the corpse. She is, however, interested in Walker's body, and he discovers he's interested in hers as well.

But he can't tarry long, for the Mafia could be involved…or maybe there's a connection to the porno film studio where the missing woman's former maid now works. But when two Mossad agents accost Walker—and then are brutally killed—he realizes he's discovered a plot far darker run by someone more deadly than either the Detroit Mafia or a two-bit porn pusher.

Who—or what—could be so viciously murderous? Walker has few clues, and knows only that with every new murder he is no closer to solving the case. When he finally gets a break, he recognizes the silken, deadly hand of a nemesis who nearly killed him twice before…and this time may finish the job.

In Loren D. Estleman's Don't Look For Me, Amos Walker's up to his neck in dames, drugs…and murder, again.

    ¿Don¿t look for me¿ is the entire content of a handwritten note

    “Don’t look for me” is the entire content of a handwritten note left for the newest client of Amos Walker, to wit: a full partner in an investment company “with gray temples and an office with a view of two countries” - - that would be the US and Canada - - whose wife, 14 years her junior, has disappeared for the second time in the six years they’ve been married Her husband suspects anything from her having left him for a younger man to having met with foul play.

    Mr. Estleman is the author of over 70 novels, and this is the 23rd entry in the series. Walker, a former cop who carries an honorary sheriff’s star, is now a private detective renowned for finding missing persons. There is immediate evidence of the author’s trademark wit, to which the new client responds: “The humor I can take or let alone.” Not so the reader. His descriptions of several characters are exquisite portraits. Of his new client’s choice of attire: “a suit the color and approximate weight of ground fog,” and of the man himself, “If he was so rich, why wasn’t he smart?” The superintendent of his building was “on the tattered outer edge of middle age.” Inspector John Alderdyce, of the Homicide division of the Detroit Police Department, who he’d known “longer than anyone living,” and who is Walker’s “bane and salvation, . . . looks like a grizzly bear carved with a chainsaw from a living oak.”

    Walker soon realizes that “a simple missing-persons case had turned into something else, like most things in a bad dream.” It ultimately involves the Detroit Mafia, a porno film studio, and a ‘Dragon Lady’ nemesis of Walker, “a psychopath with a two hundred IQ and more liquid assets than an emirate . .. ten times smarter than I am and twice as insane. Make that three times.”

    A fast-paced and consistently witty entry in this terrific series, it is highly recommended. ( It should perhaps be noted that the author's newest book, Ragtime Cowboys, is due out later this month.)
