An Ed Lacy
mystery with a private eye
. This one was published in hardcover and recieved some high praise.
Here's a quote:
"The Best That Ever Did It
...[enjoyed] his first solid recognition. The book went into a second printing. The protagonist Barney Harris is a 248-pound auto mechanic/PI based in New York City
who is hired by a cop’s widow to root out police corruption and nail her husband’s murderer.
"....This Ed Lacy title snagged plaudits from the picky James Sandoe (“exhibits a suspenseful proceeding”), Anthony Boucher (“lively, ingenious, entertaining”), and The New Yorker (“plot is probably sound enough”). Indeed, Ed Lacy had hit a groove all writers dream about in their careers."
I hope you enjoy it.
