Leland Stutch, creator of an automobile dynasty and master of the town of Iroquois Heights, just outside Detroit, died at an age well over one hundred. Rayellen Stutch, the 30-something widow of Leland, calls on Amos Walker to undertake a most unusual investigation. Since she has more than enough money to see her comfortably through life, she wishes to share the wealth with the various mistresses and illegitimate children Leland had throughout his long, long life. As Walker locates the various individuals and picks up information about Leland's numerous daliances, he learns that a long life of power makes one many, many enemies.

Review:

"'Estleman is a superb stylist as well as a deft storyteller; he paints his people and his city with acerbic wit and wry affection.' San Diego Union Tribune 'Amos Walker is on my short list of hard-boiled private eyes with staying power...the dependable, wide-bodied model in a classic line.' New York Times 'Walker (is) one of the most appealing fictional sleuths working today...Estleman is a consistently excellent storyteller...this excellent series keeps getting better and better.' Chicago Tribune 'Extraordinarily observant narration, intelligent dialogue, memorable characters - and style to spare.' Publishers Weekly 'I'm a big admirer of Loren Estleman...He has total mastery of the noir form and a beautiful command of English.' Sara Paretsky, author of Bitter Medicine"
