Overview

It's been twenty long years since a hit man killed Fiddler's Uncle Jake in the Mexican desert, but when an anonymous phone caller offers to turn over the murderer for $50,000, Fiddler realizes that his desire for revenge hasn't cooled with time. Against Fiora's wishes, he arranges to meet the mysterious caller on L.A.'s Venice Beach. Jake packs up the cash and Uncle Jake's old .45, and heads out. Thus begins Murder Hurts, the most thrilling installment to date in A. E. Maxwell's series featuring Fiddler and Fiora, the crime-solving couple whom Kirkus Reviews dubbed "the Nick and Nora of the nineties." This new mystery takes the couple from Hollywood's elite circle of power brokers to the depths of the Mexican underworld to solve the twenty-year-old murder. In the early seventies Fiddler's Uncle Jake was in the business of smuggling along the Mexican border - not for the profit, but for the adventure. But the adventure ended one day with a bullet in Jake's head and one that nearly killed Fiddler as well. Now, with the help of Fiora, Fiddler has to unravel the mystery of who wanted his uncle dead. As they edge closer to the truth, it becomes clear that the murderer will kill again in order to throw Fiddler and Fiora off the trail.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Southern California's stylish PI team of Fiddler and Fiora returns in their eighth adrenaline-propelled adventure. Hard-driving, gun-toting Fiddler is seduced by the possibility of avenging the death of his beloved Uncle Jake, a small-time drug dealer and smuggler who was gunned down south of the border years before. Fiddler, who was there at the time, shot one of the killers; now he gets an anonymous call offering information about the other. Fiddler encounters the second ``executioner'' and barely escapes a manslaughter charge. But important questions are raised about Jake's last job and his former associates as Fiddler receives some old photos showing his uncle with sundry Tinseltown powers who are now expiring at an alarming rate. As the body count climbs to double digits, Fiora, a sexy financial maven who talks horny and dresses like a hooker, occasionally rescues Fiddler, who drives exotic cars, uses exotic firearms, waxes hardboiled and existential and is, in the end, pretty much of a doofus. Maxwell, a husband-and-wife team, also wrote Just Another Day in Paradise. (Sept.)
