Stoner is a private eye in the classic tradition: a loner with a history of failed relationships with women and all-too-successful relationships with bottles of scotch. He's unable to look away from the world's corruption—and unable to avoid trying to do something about it. His latest hopeless cause is Cindy Ann, a teenage hooker. She's not very pretty or bright or engaging … she doesn't have much to offer at all. So when she disappears, it's all the more disturbing for Stoner—who knows what can happen to girls that nobody wants. And he's got a sick hunch that he knows what happened to Cindy Ann, right across the Cincinnati border. Stoner's hunches are almost always on the money—and they rarely feature happy endings.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rough, vivid, and impressive.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Harry Stoner of Cincinnati is a welcome addition to the Archer/Spenser/McGee descendants of Philip Marlowe; Valin works a fresh, unmannered variation on that familiar downbeat, dourly amused narrating voice. A...successful debut.” Kirkus Reviews
