Overview

Devil on My Doorstep has Jim Rockford in one hell of a mess - the credit companies are after his stuff, his buddy Angel has cooked up another scheme that is a sure thing (sure to get them both killed), and he's way behind on everything. When a beautiful young girl shows up at his door claiming to be the daughter of an old flame, he's dubious. When she claims that she's his daughter, all the bells go off. She's on the run, scared, and tells Jim that she thinks someone has killed her mother ... and that that someone is her stepfather. Whatever the outcome, Jim will do what it takes to find the truth, no matter how painful it may be. And he'll even try not to get killed in the process.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Jim Rockford returns with his trusty Firebird, without his deceased father and with Angel, his con man pal, in a loose and lively second adventure after The Green Bottle. Jim's trashy beachfront trailer home becomes a safe haven for Melisa Conforti, the teenage daughter of Jim's former lover Rene. Melisa shows Jim a letter, signed by Rene, that indicates Melisa is his daughter. Jim, having recently lost his beloved father, Rocky, is inclined to believe her. Melisa is in trouble. Rene and her husband, Michael, were hiding out, protected by federal agents after witnessing a mob murder. The first 30 pages or so move gently as Kaminsky works to establish the easy rhythmic mayhem of Rockford's life. Then Rene is killed, the feds seize Melisa, and a poetry-loving hit man named Wright enters the picture. Rene and Michael aren't who they say they are; the feds may not be on the level; Jim comes a little too close to working for the mob; and dead bodies keep turning up in car trunks. All this keeps Jim away from Angel's side, as his good buddy manages to set himself up as a portrait painter of Spanish extraction and great fame. As with all Angel scams, this artist pose has a decidedly limited shelf life. Edgar Award winner Kaminsky author of the Toby Peters series, the Abe Lieberman series and the series starring Russian Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov is a stellar talent and shows great skill in creating a carefully updated version of the much-loved TV PI. Mar.
Library Journal
A teenaged girl shows up on Rockford's doorstep claiming to be his daughter and asking for his help: her stepfather may have killed her mother. The second title in the "Rockford Files" series, this is substantial fare for fans of the old TV show.
From the Publisher
"Stuart Kaminsky is hard to beat for a thoughtful, well-plotted, well-written mystery...He inhabits Rockford's skin with amazing grace, managing to create a convincing balance between the sentimental and cynical sides of the detective."—The Washington Post Book World

"Kaminsky has the pro's knack of combining quirky people, succinct descriptions, an eye for detail, and dark humor to produce entertainment at its best."—Chicago Sun-Times
