Overview

"The Sundown Speech," a hot new Amos Walker mystery by Loren D. Estleman, the master of the hard-boiled detective novel.

Amos Walker is hired by Helen and Dante Gunner, a bohemian Ann Arbor couple, to find Jerry Marcus, a film director who has disappeared with their investment money. It's one of Walker's easiest jobs to date. In just a few short hours, Walker locates Marcus in his bedroom...murdered, his body shoved into a cupboard, a bullet through his head.

This case is opened and shut quickly, but Walker can't quite let it go. When Dante is arrested for the murder Walker finds himself again in Helen's employ, this time trying to prove that Dante didn't do it.

When Walker interviews Holly Zacharias, a college student who was the last person to see Marcus alive, things get interesting. Because if Marcus is dead, and Dante is his killer, then who is driving by in the Crown Vic, shooting at Walker and Holly?

Jerry Marcus just might still be alive, and his plans may be worse than anything Walker can imagine.

A weak plot, which includes a major contrivance, mars Shamus Awardwinner Estlemans 25th Amos Walker novel (after 2014s You Know Who Killed Me). An Ann Arbor, Mich., couple hire the Detroit PI to find Jerry Marcus, a missing filmmaker they invested money with. Marcus was working on a sci-fi project with a premise that sounds like a parody from the Simpsons (aliens from a planet run by a totalitarian regime come to Earth to clone both front-runners for the office of the president of the United States). Locating Marcus raises more questions than answers, and Walker soon has several murders to solve. While the hard-edged narration is as spot-on as ever, the supporting characters, from a goth college student with a heart of gold to the detectives clients, are less nuanced than usual. The seriess many fans can only hope for a return to form next time. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary. (Nov.)
