Together with his partner Linc Diesel, Detective Lance Carter is going to have to travel to the darker side of Philadelphia if he is going to have a chance at helping his client and the unknown caller. What he finds in the process may be a possible link to his own past, but it could be more than he wants to know. If Carter's not careful it could spell the end of not only Carter Investigations, but also Carter himself.
Philadelphia Story is not my usual genre of reading material, and I was admittedly skeptical of what I was about to read. My fears were put to rest as soon as I had finished the first few pages. Philadelphia Story was almost like 1946's The Big Sleep was meeting up with a more modern version of Detective Phillip Marlow. It had a flow that, while at times was predictable, was incredibly smooth for the most part. Sarte does a great job of allowing his readers a glimpse of Philadelphia and its rich history, as well as spinning a tale that is fast paced and right in your face until the end. About the only con of the story is that the main character has a bit of a perverted streak in him, which might not settle well with some readers, but not so overpowering as to take away from the story.
I highly recommend Philadelphia Story to those interested in a good detective story, as well as those looking for something to stimulate the imagination. Whether you are new to the genre, or seasoned all the way back to the 1940's and 50's old school detective stories, this one is a must read.

This novel is about detective/private investigator Lance Carter who lives in Philadelphia and is a former special ops guy. Anyway, obviously he's a tough guy who can handle himself but he seems to run into trouble at every turn. Anyway, one case he is working on runs into another but he just can't figure out how or why. Meanwhile while trying to protect a deceased long-time friend's daughter who he was close with 10 years earlier, he finds the common thread and it puts himself and those around him in grave danger.
Along the way you meet many interesting characters such Copper his dog and faithful companion, Betsy his favorite gun, no nonsense and tough nosed Linc Diesel his unofficial partner and Gabby who was in the Marines and is a tech junkie are among those who helps Lance figure out the case...but I won't tell any more to spoil the plot.
This is a very good book and one I recommend to anyone liking mysteries and action. Very good story, congratulations Bruce!!
For amazon: Find some way to get rid of the inflated, author-sponsored ratings or you are going to loose customers.
If you are looking for a fairly quick read that keeps you hooked from the first page to the last, this is one for you.
