But Billy’s photo told Stoner he didn’t like the man … or the shape he was in. The eye revealed a killer mentality—a player who crushed, mangled, and sacked with pleasure.

    " Great entry in this PI series set in Cincinnati. Harry Stoner is hired by the professional football team in Cincy to find one of their players who has gone AWOL from training camp. Excellent plot with well-rounded, realistic characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Martha | 1/10/2013

    " Disappointingly straightforward and exposition-heavy -- I like my Chandler heirs to be a bit more dreamy than Valin, though I thought The Lime Pit was quite good. "
