The first couple of chapters gave me a bit of a problem, but once I settled in and got familiar with the characters, the book stayed at the top of my Kindle for the next week until it was read.
Essentially, Stevens has created a PI by the name of Stan Bentworth whose departure from a mid-sized police department in Maryland was under less than perfect circumstances. Bentworth's investigative mind is incredibly sharp, but unlike most cliché PI novels, Bentworth is not tough, he's not a shooter or Rambo kind of PI, he doesn't drive a sports car or even a pickup truck (he drives a compact station-wagon), and he's not sexy looking or muscular.
But in the real world, clients hire private investigators for their brains, not their brawn and looks. To that end, Bentworth is one hell of a good investigator.
Business is slow when he gets a case. . .from an ex-mobster. . . an ex-enforcer (read: very LARGE, VERY TOUGH) for the mob who got fingered for a crime, cut a deal, went into witness protection and while in, learned the (legitimate) investment business and is now a gazillionaire.
Problem is, he's being blackmailed and he hires Bentworth to find out who.
Bentworth finds out who is doing the blackmailing and rather than that solving the case, it not only complicates it, but casts his client under suspicions--for murder.Read more ›
good story that held your attention. The characters were your regular everyday people, you could read without a lot of cringing at the vocabulary. I give this book a thumbs up, truly enjoyed it. It even ended without leaving a lot of questions.
loved his humorous attitude toward life.
This is the first of the Stanley Bentworth mysteries and promises some fun reading time! The over-use of "last cigarette ever", & "last drink" are a bit much, but the plots & subplots are well developed. Will I purchase more in the series? Haven't decided yet.

Stan Bentworth is a private investigator from the same mold that gave us Columbo. Very effective and somewhat unorthodox. This is a great mystery packed with humor, too.Published 17 days ago by Midwest Amazon Fan
This is a fun detective mystery book. The main character had his flaws but they weren't over the top or so unbelievable that it was a chore to read. Read morePublished 2 months ago by BonusMom
