With his usual knife-sharp prose in cutting form, Loren D. Estleman proves that he can carve a short story as cleanly as the full-length Amos Walker detective novels.
Detroit's favorite private investigator, Amos Walker, barrels through this collection of five short stories by Shamus Award winner Loren D. Estleman. General Murders upholds Estleman's reputation as a master of the short story. Both card-carrying fans of Amos Walker and those who are new to the series will devour these stories as they, with Walker, expose crime in some of the most corrupt alleys and steamy streets of Detroit.
In this collection are five vintage Walker stories: "Greektown", "Robbers' Roost", "Fast Burn", "Dead Soldier", and "Eight-Mile and Dequindre".In five stories that typify the best of the private-eye fiction genre, you will experience big-city corruption and scandal along with hard-edged, wise-cracking PI Amos Walker, whom critics place "at or near the top of the list of hard-boiled private eyes" (Publishers Weekly).
