Overview

#11 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . .

“Page turner of the week . . . narrative comfort food . . . a nifty spin on a classic P.I. formula.” — People Magazine

“A solidly paced narrative . . . recommended to readers who enjoy the modern PI knight-errant.” — Booklist

Veteran private eye Milan Jacovich (it’s pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovitch) is rarely surprised. But his attention is grabbed one day by a Native American man wearing traditional clothing and waist-length, iron gray braids, sitting across the street from his suburban Cleveland apartment for twelve hours in a driving snowstorm.

When the old man is found murdered and floating in the river the very next day, Milan feels the unsettling urge to do something about it.

He’s already working on another case—a simple one, he thinks. The CEO of a local toy company has hired him for a background check on his new accountant, David Ream. Milan quickly learns Ream is not at all what he seems to be, and the case gets very messy, very fast.

Dancing dangerously between the two cases, Milan runs into more murder and a suspense-filled finish including a shoot-out in the fountain plaza at downtown Tower City.

    Enjoyable Jacovich tale

    Armand Treusch, CEO of Troy Toy Inc. hires Cleveland security specialist and private sleuth Milan Jacovich to check out his recent hire, accountant David Ream. Treusch feels Ream asks too many questions about 'non-accounting' matters like production. Although he does not like Treusch, Milan accepts the job because the money is green. <P>Near his home, while winter freezes the city, an elderly Native American stands tall for two whole days until someone kills him. Feeling a bit guilty for not finding out what the old man wanted, Milan begins his own inquiries only to learn that an assailant abducted the great great-grandson of the deceased, a tribal historian. <P> In his eleventh novel, the Jacovich mysteries retain its freshness when the hero is on a case or on two as he is in this tale. However, when Milan conducts soliloquies on his personal habits and desires (chocolate lovers beware), instead of wonderful insight, the exciting story line is slowed down. Fans of the series will enjoy INDIAN SIGN as Les Roberts knows how to make his intriguing protagonist seem real and his two investigations entertaining, but too much trivial characterization hurts an otherwise wonderful mystery. <P>Harriet Klausner
