NOMINATED FOR THE EDGAR AWARD
Terry Traven is an L. A. private eye who modeled himself after Philip Marlowe and thrived in the 1960s, becoming a minor celebrity for his hardboiled style and his skill at tracking down runaways. But now it’s the 1980s, his minor fame has completely faded, and he’s barely making a living. So he jumps at the opportunity to find a wealthy, born-again industrialist’s missing son who has been dabbling in drugs and punk rock. It’s not just a chance to save the kid… but himself. Traven’s search leads him into a bizarre, cocaine-drizzled world populated by kidnappers, drug dealers, talent agents, greedy entrepreneurs, religious zealots and desperate killers.
“Miller pretty much equals the masters — Hammett and Chandler — of the hardboiled detective story,” Houston Post
“THE BLACK GLOVE is every bit as remarkable as the best film noir of the 1940s,” Detroit News
