Stanley Bentworth is not all that tough. Previously a homicide cop, he drank his way out of a job and now runs a one-man private eye agency. When a wealthy financier needs an anonymous blackmailer found in a life and death situation, Stanley seizes the chance to earn a fee.
If he fails, the blackmailer outs his client to the mob, giving the client a one-way ticket to the landfill with Stanley an unwilling passenger on that ride.
He knows he must not fail, no small feat given that Stanley Bentworth is not all that tough.

Soft Boiled detective
What a terrific book. Excellent characters--not just interesting but believable as well. Main character tells his story with good humor and in a clear and concise way. When does the next in the series get published?
On The Street Where You Die
Excellent! Reminded me of the Bogart and Keach PI's. Loved the dry humor thrown in, and the pace of the story, with murder, and plenty of mystery right up to the very end.
