Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

PI Ralph Poteet contends with the police, a killer and numerous murder victims after attempting to blackmail a bishop with evidence of a monsignor dying in a hooker's bed. "The humor is broad, the story silly; the usually reliable writer disappoints this time out," complained PW .
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

Ralph Poteet belongs to that sub-genre of sleazy, overweight, boozing, and otherwise disgusting private detectives increasingly offered as protagonists working for the "betterment" of humankind. Nonetheless exhibiting a modicum of charm through his heavy-handed humor, Poteet proceeds to wangle his way out of several murder charges after answering a middle-of-the-night call from the hooker upstairs. No sooner has Poteet removed a dead Catholic monsignor from her bed than someone rigs an explosion which sends the hooker to the hospital. Great dialogue, slick prose, and other creaky characters accompany Poteet through an undeniably entertaining plot.
