Overview

It's his ex-wife and current lover Fiora who breaks the news to Fiddler that an American customs agent who once saved his life has died a suspicious death on the U.S.-Mexican border. Owing this guy a big favor, the handsome, hard-edged P.I. heads south to see what his unique combination of bribery, charm, intimidation, and muscle can turn up - with his nine-millimeter Detonics for backup, of course.

Following a bloody trail that leads unsurprisingly to Fiora, Fiddler backtracks to a bunk in sunny California. Suddenly Fiora is also very vulnerable, thanks to an enemy from their past who, despite Fiddler's best efforts, refuses to die.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fans of the three previous novels about California private eye Fiddler (Just Another Day in Paradise et al.) will probably overlook some rehashing of earlier adventures here, but new readers may balk. The day that narrator Fiddler becomes aware that he is under surveillance, he also hears of the death of Aaron Sharp, a border agent who'd once saved his life. Having received a message that Sharp's death wasn't accidental, Fiddler heads for the California-Mexico border. Fiddler's ex-wife and current live-in lover Fiora is trying to take over an Orange County investment bank and is very unhappy at his exposure to danger. Before he knows it, Fiddler is hip-deep in a racket that smuggles aliens across the border, and he learns that he and Fiora are next on a mysterious hit list. Eventually, he discovers that it's all part of a plot by charming, ruthless Russian agent Volker (Fiddler's old nemesis and Fiora's ex-lover) to take over the bank so that the Soviets will have an insider view of California and U.S. high-tech firms. While the action is fast-paced, the plot seems padded. Some interesting characters appear (a rich widow is wonderfully vulgar), but Fiddler's charm wears thin with sentimentality. (May)
