A chance encounter lands him a job with Harry Strummer, the streetwise owner of the Peerless Detective Agency. At Harry's oddball agency, Billy hones his skills, learning how to stake out a mark, find a bug, and spot a tail. Odd life lessons and unexpected romance come his way. But as he searches for Rita, an even bigger mystery comes along, one that puts Harry, and Billy with him, in the crosshairs. This punchy, spellbinding noir spins a web that will catch readers and hold them captive to the final second, when we learn that Billy's Chicago is a town where nothing is ever truly left up to chance.

Another oddball, darn fine read
Take a break from blood and violence. Relax after a stressful day where you work and slip into this Private Detective Agency as a young man, just discharged from a stint in the Army, searching for the rest of his life. You earn a bonus point if you have evrr lived in Chicago. A lot is going on in this charming, yes charming, adventure. I really was sorry when it was over. Vivid local color, a dash of history, oddball characters and a murder... maybe 2... doesn't matter. Darn good writing and better listening.
