An Albert Samson novel
Michael Z. Lewin is the award-winning author of many mystery novels and short stories. Most have been set in and around Indianapolis, Indiana, where he grew up. Albert Samson is a low-key private eye and the stories focus on humane understanding of the cases and problems Samson encounters. Leroy Powder is an irascible Indy police lieutenant who truly wants his colleagues to become better cops. They're bound to be grateful, right? Both central characters have an abiding wish to see justice done. One of the features of the series novels, and some stand-alones, is that that main characters from one book often appear in lesser roles in other books. Since 1971 Mike has lived in the West of England, currently in Bath where his city-centre flat overlooks the nearby hills. Both his children have made careers in the arts.

Packed with suspense; literate and funny Boston Globe ... so amusing, the wonder is that it also works so well as a thriller ... Fast, funny and brilliant The Wall Street Journal Michael Lewin... is as witty as Robert Parker, as ingratiating as Sue Grafton and as crafty a plotter as either Washington Post Book World Indianapolis's most likably raffish private eye... The cases merge in a... highly satisfying way... A good time is had by all, especially smart-talking, dumb-acting Samson and his readers Kirkus Reviews
