Publisher Description

After the death of his wife, a grieving Lew Fonesca drives from Chicago until his car gives out in the parking lot of a Sarasota, Florida, Dairy Queen. Trying to avoid his emotions and rebuild his life, he takes up work as a freelance process server. One of the attorneys he works for gives him his first case: A local entrepreneur’s trophy wife has gone missing, and Fonesca must locate her. At the same time, a mother comes to him for help locating her runaway underage daughter, whom she fears has been sold into vice. Both cases are more complex than they seem, and Fonesca is kept in plenty of danger. Nonetheless, with a colorful bunch of secondary characters to help him, he'll solve both of them. “Staked with vivid characters and plenty of local color.”—New York Times

    " "We, at least, I need monsters. Without monsters there are no heroes." That quote alone was worth 3 stars. The 4th star was for the ending. "

    " I liked the sad sack hero and the twist I didn't see coming at the end. I also liked this reader (Scott Brick), a new voice for me. "

About the Author

Stuart Kaminsky (1934–2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema—two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life’s work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood’s Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote Bullet for a Star, his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life. Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as “the anti–Philip Marlowe.” In 1981’s Death of a Dissident, Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009.
