Every Brilliant Eye

While trying to help an old friend out of trouble, Detroit PI Amos Walker finds some trouble of his own
Barry Stackpole was tough once. Amos Walker met him in a Cambodian shell crater when Walker was serving his country and Stackpole was on the payroll of the Detroit News, and they formed the kind of bond that war often creates. At war’s end, they returned to the Motor City, where Stackpole took to reporting crimes and Walker to solving them.
 
A violent run-in with a big time mobster left Stackpole a leg and two fingers short, and he became an alcoholic. He has made several attempts to get his life straight since, but never quite managed. Now he’s fallen off the wagon again, harder than ever before, and his girlfriend begs Walker to find him before he drinks himself to death. But in Detroit, death can find a man in many ways.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

'“One of the best hard-boiled writers of all time . . . Remarkably, he has kept his Detroit-based Amos Walker series fresh after three decades and 20 novels.” —Publishers Weekly “For readers who can’t get enough of Elmore Leonard and Ross Thomas, try Estleman. He’s that good.” —People “Packed with lean prose, terse dialogue, tough-guy humor and balletically choreographed violence, all in service to a throwback hero who’ll fight to the death for his beleaguered hometown.” —The New York Times'
