Publisher's Summary

Harry Denton is behind on his rent, his phone bill, and his life. He is just about to close down his private investigation business when he finally gets a client. The job sounds like a simple one: photograph a famous self-help author with his mistress. When Harry finds him, however, the creator of Life's Little Maintenance Manual is very alone - and very dead. Now, instead of a detective, Harry is a murder suspect. If he can't track down the killer and clear his own name, Harry will be out of business for good.

Through the voice of L.J. Ganser, the smart-mouthed detective and some of Nashville's most colorful operators come to life.

Silly with a "wet" read.

Escapist, Light, Silly are words that come to mind as I read this book. Murder charges are treated as about as seriously as parking tickets, some of the characters are clich?d, but I was actually getting into it. Then the reader's mucousy, damp inhales and lip smacking kept diverting my attention. Perhaps it was just a technically poor recording, but the extraneous moist noise spoiled it for me.
