The first three mysteries featuring Detroit private investigator Amos Walker from the Shamus Award–winning “Stravinsky of hard-boiled prose” (John Lescroart). Four-time Shamus Award winner and Edgar Award finalist Loren D. Estleman launches an irresistible mystery series for “readers who can’t get enough of Elmore Leonard and Ross Thomas” (People). Motor City Blue : Vietnam vet, private investigator, and Bogart fan Amos Walker is scratching out a living looking for lost things in Detroit when he’s asked to find the adopted daughter of an ex-mobster. The only clue is a faded pornographic snapshot of the missing girl. Never one to give up, Walker witnesses the kidnapping of a former Vietnam friend and solves the murder case of a young black labor leader while slugging his way to a solution. Angel Eyes : Ann Maringer, an aging stripper still grinding in Detroit’s low-end dives, hires Amos Walker to locate a missing person: herself. She expects to disappear any day now—and wants to be found. True to her word, Ann disappears the next day, leaving behind a carton of cheap cigarettes and a dead body. Unshaken by the body or the circumstances, Walker sets out to find his client. After all, she paid in advance. The Midnight Man : An ambush on Detroit’s northwest side has left a police officer with a bullet lodged near his spine—and Amos Walker eager to bring the shooter to justice. He knows he’s treading dangerous ground, but being targeted by Detroit’s Finest is a twist he didn’t see coming. Walker soon learns that between the crippled cop’s sex-starved wife, militant rebels, the police, and a bounty hunter, trusting the wrong person could be a fatal mistake. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
