The first book in the long-running Amos Walker Mysteries introduces the hard-boiled Detroit detective as he searches for an aging mobster's missing adopted daughter
Private eye Amos Walker is a Vietnam veteran who was thrown out of the Police Academy for punching a fellow cadet. He's a hard man in a ruined city, scratching out a living looking for lost things.

Walker's latest case comes by way of ex-mobster Ben Morningstar, who's been living out his retirement in Phoenix while raising Maria, the daughter of a long-ago murdered friend. Only now, Maria is missing and the gangster needs Walker's help. But the trail has gone cold—the only clue is a faded pornographic snapshot.

Never one to give up, Walker witnesses the kidnapping of a former Vietnam friend and solves the murder of a young black labor leader while slugging his way to a solution.

Fans of Raymond Chandler and Elmore Leonard's crime fiction will find Estleman's lean prose, retro style, and tough-guy hero irresistible.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
