Lew Fonseca is a man who does things for people. He makes small problems go away and tries to keep the larger ones from landing his clients in jail. He finds deadbeats, errant spouses, and generally keeps the populace of Sarasota on the up-and-up. New Lew is faced with one case that will try his patience…and another that may break his heart. The first involves an elderly woman who swears she's witnessed a murder in her old-age home despite the fact that everyone she tells her story to–her family, the hospital staff, and finally the cops–all tell her that it just couldn't have happened. The other has Lew trying to find out the identity of a hit-and-run driver who killed a fourteen-year-old boy. This task dredges up old memories and a lot of pain, for Lew fled Chicago years ago, after a drunk driver killed his beloved wife. As Lew begins to dig deeper into both cases, he finds that they are tied together in ways he can't hope to untangle. And when someone tries to run him down, Lew knows that he's getting close to some nasty home truths and he is going to have to get the answers if he is to survive.

Editorial Reviews

“Readers familiar with the series, having watched Lew swamped by sadness in three earlier books will especially appreciate the possibilities of his decision, but even those who meet him for the first time cannot help cheering for him.” Publishers Weekly

Author Bio: Stuart M. Kaminsky

Author Bio: Stuart M. Kaminsky

Stuart Kaminsky (1934–2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema—two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life’s work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood’s Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote Bullet for a Star, his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life. Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as “the anti–Philip Marlowe.” In 1981’s Death of a Dissident, Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009.
