Summary
Neil Catalin is missing. His wife claims his obsession with the black and white hard-boiled detective movies of the 40's has caused him to disappear into that kind of alienated character. As Walker investigates--both in seedy Detroit and a less than idyllic Mackinac Island--he uncovers other obsessions. Violence and multiple murders seem to dog this case. Loving images from the great movies and hard-boiled detective cases of a bygone era are eloquently woven into this evocative mystery. Fans of classic film noir and the detective novels of noir masters Hammett and Chandler will especially appreciate Estleman's homage to both genres. Readers may also enjoy the classic noir mysteries of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, as well as modern mysteries with historical settings by Max Allan Collins.
