Synopsis

1988 Edgar Award Best First Mystery Nominee
1988 Shamus Award Best First Mystery Nominee
 
Stanley Hastings, the world's most unlikely private eye, a struggling actor/writer trying to support his wife and kid in New York City, who chases ambulances for a negligence lawyer and carries a camera instead of a gun and photographs accident victims and the cracks in the sidewalk that tripped them, tackles his first real case, tracking down the murderers of a client he could not save because he wasn't a real detective.
 
"Highly entertaining ... this is zesty, shrewdly paced caper-comedyreminiscent of the best of (among others) Lawrence Block and Joe Gores."
Kirkus Reviews
 
"As suspensful as it is hilarious!"
—Philadelphia Daily News
 
"A gritty, entertaining mystery!"
—Publishers Weekly
 
"A terrific page-turner of classic detection."
—Drood Review
