Publisher's Summary

Joseph Michael Ballista—“Joey Ballistic” to his Mob buddies—knows most of the ways to make an illegal buck, or “left-handed dollar”. That’s why he’s in trouble again. But his crafty lawyer, Lucille Lettermore—“Lefty Lucy” to just about every prosecutor she’s ever humiliated in court—is determined to free him by getting all his previous convictions set aside, beginning with one for attempted murder.

She hires Detroit private detective Amos Walker to investigate the old crime. Walker’s first problem? The intended victim was investigative reporter Barry Stackpole, Walker’s only true friend. Walker’s not thrilled to help get his buddy’s alleged assailant off the hook. But justice demands a closer look, so he takes the case. It won’t be easy, though. Although the creep’s ex-wives grudgingly talk with Walker, he knows they’re not leveling with him. And when two people tied to the case are murdered, they are even less likely to be cooperative. Walker, friendless and desperate for answers, follows a string of leads old and new straight into a war of nerves and bullets in Detroit’s seedy, crime-ridden underbelly.

Crack another case with Amos Walker.

    "Sly and witty"

    Estleman writes an excellent jaded police detective character with an actual sense of humor. While this isn't my favorite of his Amos Walker stories, it is a solid entry in the series, and was entertaining from start to finish.

    "Gritty and hilarious"

    The one-liners here are worth the price of admission. It is cynical, observant, funny, and of course, brilliantly read by the incomparable Stephen Hoye. Amos Walker reminds me of Sam Spade crossed with Phillip Marlowe. Hard to beat that.
