Motor City Blue

The first book in the long-running Amos Walker Mysteries introduces the hard-boiled Detroit detective as he searches for an aging mobster’s missing adopted daughter

Private eye Amos Walker is a Vietnam veteran who was thrown out of the Police Academy for punching a fellow cadet. He’s a hard man in a ruined city, scratching out a living looking for lost things.
 
Walker’s latest case comes by way of ex-mobster Ben Morningstar, who’s been living out his retirement in Phoenix while raising Maria, the daughter of a long-ago murdered friend. Only now, Maria is missing and the gangster needs Walker’s help. But the trail has gone cold—the only clue is a faded pornographic snapshot.
 
Never one to give up, Walker witnesses the kidnapping of a former Vietnam friend and solves the murder of a young black labor leader while slugging his way to a solution.
 
Fans of Raymond Chandler and Elmore Leonard’s crime fiction will find Estleman’s lean prose, retro style, and tough-guy hero irresistible.
 
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'
