Now, Lew is hired by Carl Sebastian, one of Lew's lawyer's clients, to find his missing wife. Following up on a few leads, Lew finds himself being trailed by a mysterious burly man, and saddled with another missing person case, this time a runaway teen. With the help of some friends, Lew seems to be getting closer and closer to Melanie, but will he find her before the unthinkable happens?

"Staked with vivid characters and plenty of local color...Lew has a real future ahead of him." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Kaminsky pulls of climatic suspense for each [mystery]. The biggest news, though, is his depressed little Lancelot in Levi's, who's worth at least a dozen more installments." (Kirkus Reviews)
The trouble with Lou Fonesca stories is that they end. This is the fourth I've listened to but actually the first in the series.
I love the local colour, personality development and reasonably good story lines.
This is my favorite audible detective series.
My favorite read detective series is still Ross MacDonald's Lew Archer.
I won't cross gendres and read Fonesca or listen to Archer as I wouldn't want to choose.
There are similarities. Warm climates, urban deterioration often in the midst of affluence, islands of decent humanity in sea of human corruption, good guys that can be brave and tough without vulgarity.
For this audible listener Fonesca is the winner
