Stanley Bentworth is a Private Investigator, and of course, a retired cop. He has some friends still on the force, but the brass does not much appreciate his finer qualities. This story involves a case that a secretive financier brings to him involving blackmail. Buford Overbee, it seems, is a former mob collector, who turned for the Feds, then got into witness protection, at least for a while. He is being threatened to be outed for who he is to the mob. Stan takes care of most of this situation inside of a day with the help of his computer whiz nephew, Rodney. However, then the real story begins.
Stan gets in deep trouble on multiple fronts, including the mob, witness protection, the local homicide squad, the Army, and even maybe Homeland Security. Several people end up dead, since it is a murder mystery, and several different story threads start weaving together. Through it all, the witty wisecracks keep coming.
Structurally, this is a well-written book. Spelling, grammar, tenses, homonyms, all are well done. Since the author has been a technical writer, I would expect no less from him. The pace is quick and enjoyable, and the book is a fairly fast read. If you enjoy murder mysteries that aren't dry, slow, and laden with deep explanations, this book is for you. It's an enjoyable romp into murder, if such a thing exists. For me, it is a high 4-star effort by the author, Al Stevens. This is a worthy book to put into your "to be read" stack.
