Amos Walker:The Complete Story Collection-Loren D. Estleman

For P.I. fans, this has always been a must read series. If you haven’t read the novels, check out the short stories. They’ll make you a fan. Amos is a hard boiled Detroit P.I. The thirty-two stories are from 1982,83,85-88,90-96,98,2000,01,03,06,07,09,10.

Favorites include: “Robber’s Roost” (1982)-Walker is hired by a man dying in a nursing home. He wants a gangster put in jail before he dies. He says the mobster murdered his brother fifty years ago.

“Eight Mile & Dequindre” (1985)-Amos is in a diner when a man is gunned down in a phone booth. Was it a mob hit?

“Blond And Blue” (1985)-A man takes off with his seven year old son. It’s not a simple case of parental abduction. The FBI and the cops warn Amos to back off investigating.

“Bloody July” (1985)- Amos turns down a job to find some illegal guns stolen from a man. They include a Thompson submachine gun. The case has its roots in the notorious Purple Gang.

“People Who Kill” (1986)-Amos tells the story of what happened when a homeless man saw something he shouldn’t have. Three men are now after him.

“Dogs” (1987)- Amos is hired to find a stolen seeing eye dog. It leads him to a dog fighting ring. That’s not all that’s bet on.

“The Man Who Loved Noir” (1991)- Amos is hired to find a missing man obsessed with noir films of the 40’s and 50’s. It sounds like he’s living his life like he’s in one.

About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
