Overview

Stanley Bentworth is not all that tough. Previously a homicide cop, he drank his way out of a job and now runs a one-man private eye agency finding people who don’t want to be found. He doesn’t accept tough-guy assignments, calling himself a “soft-boiled detective,” but a recession is on, and business is off, so when a wealthy financier, formerly a mob enforcer, needs an anonymous blackmailer found in a life and death situation, Stanley seizes the chance to earn a fee.

If he fails, the blackmailer outs his client to the wise guys, in which case the client gets a one-way ticket to the landfill, and Stanley risks becoming an unwilling passenger on that ride.

He knows he must not fail, no small feat given that Stanley Bentworth is not all that tough.

    Good read

    I got this book for free, didnt think it would be as good as it was. The author drew you into liking the main character right from the start, I also like that the story line kept you interested, yet it didnt have pages and pages of unneeded nonsense that had nothing to do with the actual story line,felt more satisfied reading this book than reading others that are twice as long, bottom line you wont be dissappointed. Will be looking forward to the next ones!

    I enjoyed this mystery

    I enjoyed this mystery. I will read more by this author. There is sex and violence, some humor. After I finished this book, I wanted one last glass of bourban and a last cigarette. Unfortunately, I do not imbide in either. This book just made them seem appropiate. For ages 18 and up. Not chick lit. About 250 pages.

    Excellent!

    Great read! Characters are likable and funny. Author has great sense of humor. Pace was great. Never a boring moment. Only one complaint. Too much drinking. Character is great without all the booze. Looking forward to more in series. James Patterson move over!
