St. Louis, 1955. Roy DeLon is hired to drag a man’s name through the mud. He doesn’t have a problem with that. Roy’s got a problem with the string of untimely deaths that occur after he comes to town. The police aren’t doing what they’re supposed to and sleazy business owners are eager for ol’ Roy to leave their fair city.
It’s a rough game, this PI business, but Roy knew that going in.
If you’re a fan of Raymond Chandler, you’re going to love Roy DeLon’s sarcasm, wit and blunt honesty as he snoops around millionaires’ mansions, rubs elbows with the riffraff, and drinks his way through a murder mystery that quickly turns into a matter of national security.
