Walker at his darkest, and best,
This review is from: The Glass Highway (The Amos Walker Series #4) (Paperback)
Amos Walker has one heck of a rollercoaster ride in the third installment of Loren D. Estleman's suberb P.I. series. Its Christmas in Detroit and our hero gets seduced, beaten up, arrested, threatened; your usual yuletide activities. Along the way he encouters crooked cops, media hungry politicians, spoiled rich kids and ham-handed Federal agents. I'd rate "The Glass Highway" a notch above the first two novels in the series ("Motor City Blue" and "Angel Eyes") because its plot is tighter and more plausible. Nevertheless, there seems to be no such thing as a bad Amos Walker mystery.
As a bonus, this I-Books edition features an afterword from the author regarding his inspirations for the novel. It also contains an Amos Walker short story, "Cigarette Stop" as the dessert to a very fine meal.
