Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This in-print equivalent of a buddy movie, a sequel to Dead Aim , begins with the crash of a small plane in Idaho and proceeds nonstop from there. Chris Klick, L.A. tracer of lost music royalties, is vacationing at the rustic, but posh, digs of his friend Jim Lyel, rich ex-NBA star. Both are well over six feet tall, tough, smart, sensitive--it is 1990--and by the end of the book they've fought a fire, drag-raced, dodged killers, rescued a beauty in distress, then saved her father, thwarted land-grabbers and gone fishing. Klick agrees to look for a missing local girl, Bert, and almost simultaneously begins to trace the murky ownership of a San Francisco building for beautiful Alicia Gelbhardt and her rich father. Klick's two "cases" come together when Alicia, whom he's bedded, abruptly calls off the title search and he uncovers evidence of Bert's death that suggests that Alicia's father might be involved. In a series of climaxes Klick fends off vicious killers before he and Lyel uncover a real estate scam. Not very deep but fast.

Review

"The entrance of yet a third damsel--luscious, lithe Alicia--shows Klick and Lyel how to follow the money.... "Amateur Chris Klick...right on target"
--Cincinnati Inquirer"

"A beautifully handled debut novel that blaances all the best p.i. elements with a lyrical sense of the country...Sardonic, wry, and remarkable in both plotting and pacing." --Kirkus Review of first two Chris Klick mysteries

"The windup is a thrilling chase worthy of extended film footage."  -- Washington Post Book World of first two Chris Klick mysteries

Format: Paperback
It should come as no surprise that the second book published by an author is frequently not up to the same high quality of the first one. After all, that first one (probably) was not written to a deadline, but was, rather, fueled by the inner passion of the author. It's not at all uncommon to finish writing that first book, heave a tremendous sigh of relief, and vow to never touch another typewriter, or computer, as the case may be. Thankfully, in most cases, that latter sentiment doesn't last long, (although in some instances, it doesn't last long enough!) and in a day or so, the author is inspired enough to begin the second book. Even with luck, however, if there is a contract staring him or her in the face, time can interfere with the creative process.
I don't know if that happened with this book, but it has certainly happened to many others. I LOVED McCalls's first book Dead Aim, and vowed to read all his others. It appears there are only three, so far, with just a year or two between the first two, but several years between the latter two.
Not that this book is in any way insufficient, mind you; it just isn't quite sufficient enough. Chris and Lyel are still in Idaho, still loving--and enjoying--the countryside, while indulging in the occasional bit of work, as necessary. For Chris, this is tracing lost musicians to whom royalty payments are due. Lyel's work is mostly clipping coupons. And not the cents-off-at-the-grocery-store-variety, either.
After a fatal crash at the local airport (and the two buddies are volunteer firefighters, providing us with vivid descriptions of such an activity) Chris is asked to help a local woman find her missing sister. And thus begins the chase.
