Overview

In "Burning Midnight, "master of the hard-boiled detective novel Loren D. Estleman gives readers a hot new Amos Walker mystery.
Amos Walker knows Detroit, from the highest to the lowest, and that includes the gangs of Mexicantown. When a friend asks Walker to get his son's brother-in-law out of one of two feuding gangs, Walker gets in trouble fast. First, dead bodies start to pile up; then come suspicious fires and the bottle bombs. Walker is caught in the middle of a gang war.

Whether or not a middle-aged gringo like him can cool things off between the Maldados and the Zapatistas, he's got to try; he did promise his friend. Once he gets involved, he realizes there's something else going on; the specter of an international conspiracy threatens to make this local trouble blow sky-high. And if he ends up dead or in jail for murders he didn't commit, he might have to put that promise on hold. It's tough being Amos Walker.

An unusual client hires Amos Walker in Edgar-finalist Estleman’s outstanding 22nd novel featuring the Detroit PI (after 2011’s Infernal Angels). Walker’s longtime friend and professional ally, Insp. John Alderdyce “of the Detroit Police Homicide Division,” is worried about his son’s Mexican brother-in-law, Ernesto Pasada. Pasada has started hanging out in Detroit’s Mexicantown with the Maldados, a gang “with a branch office in every city between here and Juarez” and no scruples about killing cops. Alderdyce wants Walker to somehow make the Maldados believe that keeping their hooks in Pasada is more trouble than it’s worth. The inspector gives the PI a plausible cover story for poking around Mexicantown, but soon after Walker does so, the bodies start to fall. Estleman offers one of his cleverest solutions to the whodunit, which is no small achievement and another sign that his font of creativity remains full. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary Agency. (June)
