Streeter's first appearance in The Low End of Nowhere met with enthusiastic raves from both sides of the Rockies. The Albuquerque Journal called his debut "sparkling." The New York Times Book Review labeled him "an eye catcher"-and the Denver Post ...
nailed him as "the quintessential loner private eye." Now Streeter's back, and this time, well, let's just say that while he's got a lot to learn in the dame department, he sure knows how to get himself tangled up in their affairs. When his ex-fianc e, Carol-a tough-talking attorney with plenty of curves-becomes the target of a murderous, disgruntled client, Streeter reluctantly signs on as her chief protector and roommate. The assignment takes him all over the streets of Denver chasing the leads on live tarantulas, dead cats, offbeat no-gooders, and steamy women. But when Carol's already erratic behavior takes a bizarre and suspicious turn, Streeter realizes he might have to pay more attention to the homefront. With on-target dark humor, nonstop action, and ingenious plotting, Streeter's return delivers unfiltered, one-hundred-proof thrills the good, old-fashioned way-straight up with a twist.
