An Amos Walker NovelBook - 2011
Motor City private investigator Amos Walker is asked to recover a bunch of HDTV converter boxes stolen from a shopkeeper who also deals in vintage televisions. Walker knows where to find people who fence hot merchandise. But when he stumbles onto the dead body of a suspect, he begins to think that something other than cheap converter boxes has been stolen. When he gets a late-night visit from an old friend, Deputy Marshal Ann Thaler, and learns his latest client is now dead, his suspicions grow. Honor-bound to figure out who killed these people and why, he eventually learns the converter boxes were being used to smuggle high-grade heroin. The trail to the missing dope might lead him to the killer--it also might put him on the killer's list of victims.
