Description-
  • An aged mobster's adopted daughter disappears, and Detroit PI Amos Walker is the only man tough enough to seek her out

    It has been years since Ben Morningstar retired. The feared mobster, now decades past his prime, left his deadly business behind and retired to Phoenix. His only concern now is Maria, daughter of a long-ago murdered friend, whom Morningstar has raised as his own. When she disappears, the old man goes into action once more.

    When Morningstar comes to Detroit, he seeks out Amos Walker to aid him in his search. A Vietnam veteran thrown out of the Police Academy for slugging a fellow cadet, Walker is a hard man in a ruined city, scratching out a living looking for lost things. Maria's trail is cold—the only clue a faded pornographic snapshot—but Walker is the toughest man in Detroit, and won't give in no matter how dangerous the journey becomes.

    This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
