Publisher's Summary

"If I see my name in tomorrow's paper yours will be in the next edition. Bordered in black."
Marla Bernstein is a pretty, dark-haired teenager who also happens to be the ward of Ben Morningstar - a semi-retired mobster who prefers to keep family business out of the newspapers. When Marla suddenly disappears, the gang boss is forced to call in private eve Amos Walker, who quickly learns his new employer doesn't take "no" for an answer when he offers a job opportunity.
Unfortunately, the only clue to Marla's whereabouts is a pornographic photograph that clearly proves that she's become part of a world that disgusts even her criminal guardian....
The photo, in turn, leads Walker into the seedy world of Detroit's porn shops and blue movies, where Marla's trail becomes even murkier and increasingly more dangerous to follow. As first cases go, Walker could have certainly asked for one less challenging.

Technical Detective Story

The main character was very good. Yet some of the good characters turned evil. I didn't like that part very much. Good mystery.

Good characters, pat ending

Since is the first in the series, it's not too surprising that the ending of this book sounds as though the author ran out of paper and had to wrap everything up. Still, the writing is good and the characters are nicely drawn. The narrator, not so great. He fails to convey any of the sense of a hardbitten private dick and the vocal characterizations are off-putting enough to keep me away from the rest of the series, which he also narrates.
